Helping Houston

As you are probably already aware, Houston and the surrounding areas have been devastated by flooding.  Lives have been changed forever.  Some of you, like Don and I, have family and friends who have definitely been affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Here is one way you can help:  Get trained to serve with SBC's Disaster Relief team!

Below is a list of dates for which you can register to receive training.  I am planning on attending the September 9th training at Central Baptist Church in Jonesboro.  You will have to register yourself for whichever training you would like to attend.

  • EMERGENCY FEEDING TRAINING - Arkansas Baptist State Convention Building (This is the greatest need right now.  They estimate they will need around 700 volunteers a week.)
    • August 30th
    • September 6th 
    • September 13th
8 am - 2 pm (lunch is included)
The following trainings will be offered:
    • Chainsaw
    • Communications
    • CPR (not certified) 
    • Feeding
    • Flood Recovery (formerly Mud-Out)
    • How to Tell Your Story (Deployment Evangelism)
    • Shower/Laundry

The cost of the training is $30 for new volunteers and $20 for volunteers who need to renew their Disaster Relief ID.
