The Tubbs Fire was the most destructive fire in California history, burning parts of Napa, Sonoma, and Lake counties.  It was one of more than a dozen large fires that broke out in early October that simultaneously burned in eight Northern California counties in what was called the Northern California Firestorm.  The fires incinerated more than 5,100 structures, including more than 2,800 in the city of Santa Rosa. 

How to get involved

The Sonoma County Churches United Relief is a collective group of pastors that has banned together to collectively meet the needs of the victims involved.  These pastors are overwhelmed with the level of support that they are receiving. Currently, there are four ways to get involved.  Please visit this page for updates as we learn more changing needs. 


FOSTER a family

FOSTER a Family

The Living Roots church community has implemented the Foster-a-Family initiative and is inviting churches, businesses, non-profits, and individuals to participate.  By fostering a family who has lost everything, you have the opportunity to support their recovery with financial assistance for specified needs. 

Compassion Capsules

Compassion Capsules

 A Compassion Capsule is a physical capsule filled with actual items that are practically and meaningfully used as part of the rebuilding process. The capsule symbolizes the commitment between a congregation (group) and the property owner for whom, through volunteer labor, a new home will be built.



Redwood Gospel Mission has identified over 500 individuals, schools, and churches that have been devastated by the Northern California Fires. Each entity is being paired by an informed expert in the region to be a liaison for real needs.  Funds go directly to the victims and do not overlap federal relief.


Pray and encourage

As more time passes and the news crews leave, know that the victims are still experiencing devastation and loss.  Please continue to pray for all of the individual and organizations affected. If you're inclined to encourage, upload photos and videos to social media, #fornorcal.

Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into...
— Jeremiah 29:7
