Storm Updates

Tuesday, August 29, 2023 | 3:00PM

All campuses will close at 9PM on Tuesday, August 29, to allow our Facilities Teams adequate time to prepare the church premises for the potential impact and get home safely.

For Wednesday, August 30:

  • Our Church Offices will remain open with regular hours of operation.
  • Regularly scheduled midweek services will take place as planned for kids, youth, and adults. Join us as we pray for God’s protection in the storm during our monthly Night of Prayer.
  • Faith Christian Academy is following the Orange County Public School System and canceling school for Wednesday, with plans to reopen on Thursday.

We invite you to visit this page periodically for official Storm Updates from Faith Assembly. Should there be any further changes to church and school programming, we’ll continue to post updates here. Stay safe, and continue to pray for those who may be more severely impacted in the wake of Idalia.

As our team tracks the path of Hurricane Idalia with prayer and guidance, the safety of our congregation and community continues to be at the forefront of our decision-making. We will continually update this page with updates as we receive more information.

Hurricane Season

Hurricane Season is classified as the distinct time of year (June 1-November 30) where storms, such as tropical depressions or hurricanes, are more likely to develop. For Floridians, this is a very normal thing to be prepared for, and includes stocking up on essentials to last for seven days. Linked below is a recommended Hurricane Supply Checklist.

Shelter Information

In the event of a storm, Orange County provides shelters to help individuals and families respond to and recover from natural disasters. Shelters are available for Central Floridians who have been evacuated from their homes, for those who live in low-lying areas, and for others seeking shelter from a storm. Shelters are alcohol, drug and weapon free.

Faith Assembly Updates

Scripture tells us in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

In short, this webpage was designed, not out of fear but of a sound mind. Its intention is to resource our community with trusted information to best prepare for Florida’s annual Hurricane Season.

In the event of any circumstances that would be compromising to the safety of the congregation, Faith Assembly will use this platform to make an official statement announcing any cancellations or modifications to services and programming.

As in the past, should all official shelters reach capacity, Faith Assembly will contingently open up its doors as a “Shelter of Last Resorts.”

When local authorities deem it is safe for individuals to leave their homes, Faith Assembly has plans to mobilize volunteers and resources to assist the community with relief efforts.
