Our denomination’s Mission to North America Disaster Response organization has much of its operations on hold due to COVID-19. This organization deploys volunteers to areas hit by a hurricane, flood, tornado, or some other natural disaster to provide assistance in clean up and recovery. Unfortunately, the current travel restrictions in place due to the pandemic have limited their ability to minister in this way. Once the travel bans are lifted they will need teams of volunteers to help with efforts that have been left incomplete due to COVID-19, as well as response to new need that are likely to result in the coming storm season.
In a recent letter they also encourage churches to use this time to consider forming teams to develop their own disaster preparedness programs. MNA Disaster Response offers workshops and seminars to help with these efforts.
Fall Festival: Saturday, November 2nd: 11am-2pm, rain or shine. Beginning this week, there will be signup sheets on the bulletin board. It is an opportunity to reach out to the community and a chance of fellowship for people in the church as well as outside the church. For any questions contact Gina Powell.
