Historic rainfall and flooding from hurricane Joaquin devastated the Midlands of South Carolina last fall. Many families are just now beginning to recover, but is estimated that 2000 families in the Midlands area still have not been able to secure the resources needed for rebuilding. But you and your congregation can help these families rebuild their lives and share the hope and love of Jesus Christ.
St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Lexington, SC is now available to host volunteer flood recovery teams. Rebuilding projects will be coordinated through St. Bernard Project and the United Way of the Midlands Flood Recovery Group (Scroll down to “Volunteer Opportunities Calendar”). All skill and ability levels are needed. Host site information and the team application and rules are available below. Contact Pastor Paulette McHugh at 803-359-2470 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to schedule your team. Please pray for the recovery effort, and thank you for supporting this mission and ministry.
