As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. ~ 1 Peter 4:10
When disaster strikes, families are torn apart, homes are destroyed, and hope is lost. Relief Ministries Calvary Chapel Mechanicsville will respond and come alongside our community to restore lives, homes, and hope in the name of Jesus Christ.
When a disaster hits here locally, we prayerfully consider responding to the need. An activation alert is then sent out to members of RMCCM and a team is formed. Servants of all levels of experience can participate. We have put tarps on roofs, cut down trees, cleaned and mucked out houses, and worked on minor plumbing and electrical repairs. If you can't serve in the field, there are some opportunities to serve from home as well. Apart from disasters, we also help out with needs in our church body that are brought to our attention. If someone needs some minor work done, and isn't able to do the work themselves due to illness or injury, then we prayerfully consider coming along side of them also.
For those interested in serving in this ministry or who would like more information please contact Jason Etheredge.
If you want to serve on a National level, there is opportunity to team up with Relief Ministries Calvary Chapel Sarasota headed up by Curt Hencye. Members of our body have been sent out to Iowa, Ohio, and Georgia for flooding and Texas and Louisiana for hurricane relief. You can take a look at their webpage and sign up for their newsletter to be alerted to when and where they will be responding to needs. If you have any questions you can talk to Jason Etheredge also.
