Service Trip

BatonRougeServiceTrip (2)

The recent flooding in Baton Rouge has wreaked havoc on whole communities. There is a lot of work and help needed. We want to go and lend a hand to offer what we can.

We will leave Tallahassee the morning of Friday, Sept 16 and return on Sunday the 18th.We have registered with MNA Disaster Response. They will provide housing and coordinate the work. All types of help are need. If you can clean or move things, you can help.

If you think you are interested in coming, go ahead and sign up . If you know other students who would be interested in joining us, send them here. Thanks for considering how you might serve.

A major portion of LA has been affected by a catastrophic flood event. It has been said this is the worst flood event in 1,000 years. The impact is severe with a number of lives lost, hundreds of roads that are impassable, bridges unsafe to cross, and homes catastrophically affected. Many counties are included in the high damage area.

This storm has opened doors for us to share God’s love to those who are in need. While the physical work is important and provides an opportunity for us to get to minister to those who have lost so much, it is most important that we remember that our real work is spiritual in nature and will last much longer than the debris that we clear to the houses we muck out.

There is a great deal of work to be done. People at all skill levels are needed. In flood response work you will be doing what is called ‘mucking out’ work, which includes, but is not limited to, the following: • Tearing out sheetrock and insulation • Ripping up flooring • Removing debris • Moving furniture and appliances • General cleaning • Yard work • Light construction 

Below is an informational fact sheet that will tell you more about the trip.
