Crittenden—A Kentucky Baptist church has stepped up to help a Missouri church recover from devastating flood damage in a unique way. They have extended a call for choir music to other churches throughout the state.
On April 29-30, floods devastated parts of Arkansas, Texas, Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri. At least 15 causalities and dozens of injuries were reported. Numerous homes were destroyed.
First Baptist Church of Van Buren, Mo., 25 miles from Poplar Bluff, was completely underwater and totally destroyed. The church had an unusual request for help: One of their needs was for choir music.
