At this time thousands of our neighbors on the East Coast of Florida are evacuating their homes for what appears to be a catastrophic Hurricane Matthew. Many of them will undoubtedly return to devastated homes and property. 

First and foremost, we ask every member of the Wildwood Church family to be in prayer for those evacuating their homes and fleeing the path of the hurricane.
