In October 2015, South Carolina experienced unimaginable flooding in the many parts of the state. Thousands of our neighbors lost everything. Since Hurricane Matthew affected the same area, the need is magnified. South Carolina Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers were joined by volunteers from many other states to minister to the families affected by the floods and this year, by the hurricane. Everything inside a flooded home was removed – walls, cabinets, carpeting; sometimes homes had to be gutted down to the studs. The SC Baptist Convention launched RebuildSC to help families have safe, livable homes.
Volunteers are needed immediately and throughout this year.
Plan a mission trip for your church or your family. Individuals are welcome, as well. Construction experience is not necessary, and you do NOT have to be Disaster Relief-trained! Just have a willing spirit. Crew leaders can help your group in ministering to one of these families in our state.
SC Baptists have a RebuildSC site in operation in the lower Pee Dee area, with housing, meals and shower facilities provided at the Johnsonville First Baptist Church. Site leaders will arrange the jobs, materials, and tools (although you may bring your own tools if you wish).
