Keith Perry is a deacon at our church and he also represents MNA's (Mission to North America) Disaster Response efforts in Eastern and Central Florida. In recent years, MNADR has seen an uptick in the number of volunteers that have been responding to the disasters that occur in our country.

is a key to getting the job done!

What can we do about it? There are two things:
1) We are trying to breath some life back into our Chainsaw Ministry. This is a group of folks who would be willing to be an on-call volunteer in case a disaster hits our area. You do not need to be a professional or even know how to run a chainsaw. As Keith said, you do not need to be highly trained. You simply need a heart for your neighbors and the gospel. If you are interested in signing up for this team, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) On Saturday, June 7, the Ironmen breakfast is hurricane readiness themed. We are offering free Hurricane Readiness Inspections to the elderly and single moms in our congregation and will be performing all of our regular Ironmen fix-em-up duties. If you would like to attend and/or you have a need that needs to be met. Please visit Ironmen Eat & Serve to sign up.
