In the aftermath of tropical storm Isaias, Hampton Roads residents are dealing with localized damage and widespread power outages. SBCV Disaster Relief is responding with chainsaw recovery teams to Gloucester County and Suffolk. Bob Williams of FBC Norfolk will lead the Gloucester team beginning work Thursday on several homes in the Clay Bank area. In Suffolk, Mark Dotson of Liberty.live will be leading a team also beginning on Thursday.
To join in responding please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please prayerfully consider conducting an online DR training at your church so that you will be ready when disaster strikes. This year’s storm season has started 5 weeks earlier than normal and is predicted to be a busy one.
Conduct an online training at your church
The SBC of Virginia offers online training to equip members of SBC of Virginia churches so they are able to respond during times of disaster. Each training is conducted in small groups facilitated by the local church using online training. The training offers necessary instruction for volunteers to respond with other Southern Baptists around the world during times of disaster and crisis. The training is practical and allows those, 18 years old and above, to serve with confidence.
