We are fundraising to launch our Disaster Relief Unit
We are incredibly excited about the work God has been doing already in 2021. We are seeing opportunities to share Jesus’ love that we didn’t imagine possible a year ago. As you may have heard, we have a big announcement. A door is opening for us to serve in disaster relief!
Already this year there have been dozens confirmed tornadoes in the southeastern US. 100’s of families' lives have been devastated because of them. We are preparing to respond when these storms hit, to share the love of Jesus with families when they need it most. To help them restore their lives both physically and spiritually.
Our disaster response team will consist of volunteers that are trained to tarp roofs and remove debris. Cut dangerous trees that have fallen or sustained damage. Most importantly, to share the love of Jesus with families whose world was turned upside down in an instant and help them build access to hope. Over the past several years we have been part of the Disaster Relief Roundtable with the Church of the Highlands. They have done a terrific job of working to coordinate relief efforts of multiple organizations and churches. This relationship will allow us to work seamlessly with the Church of the Highlands and other response organizations in coordinating responses in this region of the US.
In addition, we recently launched a satellite location in Panama City, Florida. Between Fredericksburg and Panama City, we will coordinate disaster relief with volunteers and equipment from both sites. (And yes..we have our eye on a couple other areas for satellites too)
We want you to be part of our team. In 1 Peter 4:10, Peter tells us to use the gifts God has given us to minister to one another. 516 Project tries to live out this calling with each project we take on. We would be honored to partner with you. Your financial support to make this team a reality will have huyge impact. So that when storms strike, families will see the church in action and glorify God’s name.
Thank you for making your best gift today!
