Disaster Relief Ministry in Gladwin, MI

We had an opportunity to send 10 people to Gladwin to help with Disaster Relief in the areas affected by the recent flooding. There is still a significant amount of work that still needs to be completed to help the people of Gladwin County (and beyond) to recover from the devastation of the floods. If you are able to help on Saturday, June 13 or Saturday, June 27 we will tentatively plan on sending crews up to work those days. Please see the signup genius link below to indicate your interest.
 
We won’t know what work can or will need to be done until a day or two prior. You will want to plan on it being pretty grungy, manual labor.
 
 
If you have signed up already, please watch your email on Monday or Tuesday. Pastor Jonathan hopes to have details on our trip for Saturday sent out to those who expressed interest.
