The largest active wildfire in California this season, the McKinney Fire, has impacted our church members and those connected to our churches and school.
Within 24 hours after the fire started, the NCC Disaster Response Team connected with Bob Mason, district pastor, who was at Redwood Camp Meeting. He reported, “Our Yreka church is in the mandatory evacuation zone. Currently, we have 23 church families who had to evacuate, eighteen from Yreka and five from Scott Valley.”
NCC Disaster Relief Funds in the amount of $2,300, donated by our compassionate givers, were distributed within one day after Mason sent the request and will be given to the evacuated members.
According to Mason, “The Yreka and Scott Valley members may have to meet this sabbath at the Scott Valley Church since it is not in an evacuation zone.”
Mason continues, “Thank you so much for the prayers and for reaching out about our fire here in Siskiyou County. The kindness extended will be very appreciated by our people.”
