Many thousands of churches, like my own, are small and barely self sustaining. We reach out to our community in many ways and contribute to mission works here and abroad. We are not a mega church with $$$$$ in bank accounts, and many more like ours would suffer greatly without some assistance. I understand peoples wrath and ire over the evangelicals political links and outspoken political statement, and I agree. But not all churches operate like that. Yes, churches need assistance when there are huge disasters.
