What was novel a few days ago is now dangerous and difficult. The National Forest Service has issued an Emergency Closure Order for the local mountains thru March 16. Access is restricted to residents and emergency crews only.
When you pray, please remember our neighbors in the mountain communities. Some are stuck inside their homes, others are stranded down the hill with delayed access to return home.
Many families are without access to groceries and basic supplies.
As a community of people who love God and care about each other, we can provide care and support.
