Rebuild SC // Dec 9-14 or Dec 15-20

Why this trip?

In October, 2015, South Carolina was hit with a thousand year storm.  Many, many communities and homes were flooded and people’s lives were put in disarray.  SC BCMission teams responded in a big way to help – both in Disaster Relief and in the first steps of Rebuild SC, helping people to build back.  It’s been a year since the flood, but there are still many homes in our state that need repair.  That is why we are calling as many college students as possible to come and share a few days over Christmas break to share the love of Jesus in a tangible way by helping people rebuild and move forward with Hope.  What better time of the year than the Christmas season to share love and joy with people in practical ways!

What will we do?

Probably some roofing work on one story, low pitched roofs; some work on decks or walkways; some roofing work; some clean up in yards; some roofing work; playing with some kids; some roofing work.  Experienced folks from our Disaster Rebuild work will be there to help with the projects, so don’t be afraid of not having the skills.  They just need folks that are willing to work hard and love on people (of course if you have construction skills, you’ll be a great asset to the effort!).

Where will we stay?

A few churches have opened up their facilities for use for this project.  We’ll be sleeping on gym floors (so air mattresses or cots are the way to go), we’ll have showers provided and a team will be making hot meals for us.  It won’t be like staying in a 5 star hotel, but we’ll have a lot of fun being together and having our needs met as we serve.  Most of the teams will be staying in the little town of Johnsonville and working in that region of the state.

What’s the cost?

Can you believe this?  The cost for the whole experience is $20.  Because of gracious gifts to our RebuildSC effort, we are able to provide it as a low cost.  You’ll pay that fee directly to your local BCM or church.  Transportation to and from the site is at the expense of the group and/or individual.

What are the dates?

There are two times to serve:  Dec. 9-14 and Dec. 15-20, 2016.  Check with your BCM Director or collegiate minister to see which of the dates your group is looking to serve.

What is the deadline to sign-up?

All registrations must by in by November 15, 2016.  This will help us in preparing for the right amount of work as well as planning for the meals.

BCMISSIONS SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES 2017

Love Goes Info

As you read through the 2017 positions, keep a few things in mind:

  1. Ask God to open your eyes, ears, and heart to where He wants to send you.
