Worship Resources for Natural Disasters

9/13/2018

Greetings friends,

Here are some links to some helpful resources for churches preparing Sunday worship with Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas in mind.  If these are helpful, I offer them in that spirit. 

There are many prayers, songs, litanies and articles at Discipleship Ministries:

This is a more ecumenical site (there are resources developed after tragedies in Oklahoma at this site):

Carolyn Winfrey Gillette has great, original music written for a variety of topics but she has three specifically for natural disasters such as hurricanes.  At her website (https://www.carolynshymns.com/), she has these listed at the top of her page:

  • "O God, We've Prayed in Wind and Rain"
  • "When Waters Roar and Foam"
  • "God of Creation"
She has many more hymns in her natural disaster section:
