    Our Disaster Relief Ministry's mission is to serve our community and individuals and help them to prepare, respond, and recover from disasters. The goal is to help all people in emergencies and crises like Jesus did in His teachings.

    We can only hope that the folks who tell us how many storms we will have are right this year. The problem with these predictions is that it lulls us into preparedness complacency – in other words, preparing our family and property does not make it to the top of our priority list. 

    This team currently meets on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. If you are interested in participating please contact Barry Ratcliffe, at If you need assistance in preparing your property for a hurricane or any other possible disaster we can assist you.
