Volunteers needed: Hispanic Evangelism Conference


To raise awareness of the varied ministries included in SC DR, we sometimes serve in non-disaster settings. On April 26, 2014, volunteers are needed to assist with a day camp for the children of pastors and leaders attending the Hispanic Evangelism Conference at White Oak. Although we'll be working with children, volunteers do not need to be trained in DR Child Care for this event, but do need to have had a background check. Knowing Spanish is not required! 8:15 a.m. arrival, 4:00 p.m. departure. Please contact Sue Harmon at 803-227-6152 or sueharmon@scbaptist.org for more info or to sign up.
