ABC New Jersey is partnering with American Baptist Home Mission Societies and Habitat For Humanity. Four weeks of work have been scheduled (May 4-11, June 1-8, July 13-20, and August 10-17). While you are free (and encouraged!!!) to participate in any or all weeks, the Great Rivers Region is taking the lead with the first week – May 4-11. SAVE THE DATE.
We will be housed at the ABC-NJ camp in Lebanon NJ. We will be working on the Jersey shore – but the exact worksite assignments to be arranged.
The American Baptist Men's Disaster Team is forming teams to help in the clean up following flooding in Peoria.
Brian Romanowski tells us, "This is a great opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus and share His love with people in need. We have a team currently working in Peoria and will need additional teams for several more weeks. I am trying to form a team for next week and need your help...we need folks to help with this relief effort. No skills are required, just a willingness to help. The work primarily involves removing items from the home and then power washing and possibly removing drywall and insulation.
We will be working Monday through Friday 8 am - 5 pm and people are welcome to come and serve for one day or the whole week. Meals will be provided and expenses reimbursed with One Great Hour of Sharing funds. Housing arrangements for teams are being firmed up.
Get on board with this by calling Brian:
