Stillwater congregations give to Haiti relief funds

STILLWATER, Okla. — Several local churches plan to pass the offering plate twice during Sunday services.

Stillwater's First Presbyterian Church, First United Methodist Church and St. John's University Parish will collect special offerings Sunday for Haiti disaster relief efforts, in addition to the regular collection for the church.

Stillwater's University Heights Baptist Church and First Baptist Church will post in Sunday's church bulletin addresses where donations can be sent. University Heights Baptist Church will give money to the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma and the Southern Baptist Convention, according to Pastor John Bugg.

Joe Day, pastor at Southside Baptist Church, said his church will probably contribute to disaster relief through the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.

Cushing police issued a release Friday warning people to be critical of e-mails soliciting funds for Haiti disaster relief. Contribute directly to reputable charities, police warn. For more information on fraudulent fundraising for Haiti, visit the FBI's Web site. Oklahoma State University students are accepting donations through Wednesday at the student union to help Haitians. The American Red Cross also is accepting funds to help in the relief effort.
