"If you enjoy the provision of love and fellowship within the church of Jesus Christ, be encouraged to pray for opportunities to spread that same love in service to those beyond your own local congregation—and when those opportunities come, embrace them! You won’t be disappointed by the strength and fellowship that God generously provides."
Rev. Robert Holda and Mrs. Wendy Harness wrote about the Harness Family's experience serving as a hurricane relief team in Houston, in the June 2018 issue of New Horizons.
Type of Volunteers Needed:
- Skilled volunteers are needed for major repairs and reconstruction work
- Unskilled volunteers can support the skilled team and help with local outreach
Disaster Response is diaconal:
- Let your deacons know that you are interested in volunteering for hurricane relief
- Ask if they can help you put together a team from your church
- Ask if diaconal funds can be used towards your transportation and food
