Disaster Response Team

 

Most people think of our church’s Disaster Response Team (DRT) as a group of Methodist     volunteers that help communities recover from a natural disaster such as a flood, tornado or hurricane. And they are right! Just a few of the places that we have offered post-disaster help were: Goodlettsville, TN; Cleveland, TN; Holly Pond, AL; Pleasant Grove, AL; Live Oak, FL; Defuniak Springs, FL; Dade City, FL; and Pahokee, FL. 

But we are so much more! We offer helping hands to individuals, families, our own church, and other churches and outside organizations.  Here are just a few examples.

* Helped package meals for Meals for Hope

* Helped Wimauma families install smoke detectors.

* Helped Cook’s Hat Food Pantry at the Seminole Baptist Church stock food and serve meals to the homeless. Also built storage shelving, painted, did landscaping and packaged bulk food items.

* Helped with repairs at New Port Richey UMC.

* Did landscaping at the Ruskin Senior Center.

* Repaired a mower for Elmira’s Wildlife Refuge and helped with landscaping.

* Made several trips to TiAnViCa Riding Academy in Bartow where we painted,  power washed, landscaped,     and cleaned the grounds and stables.

* Built a wheel chair ramp for a lady in need.

* Provided team funds for Vacation Bible School, Kiwanis Christmas in July, Believer Van and Believer Truck purchases and Pahokee Food Pantry. Just to name a few.

We also raise funds by collecting and selling aluminum cans and scrap metal. We have two collection trailers behind the church where you can put your cans and scrap metal.

We appreciate your financial help and hope you will consider becoming a member of our team. You do not have to be able to operate a chain saw or swing a hammer. The only qualification to serve on our team is to have a Christian desire to lend a helping hand to others. If you would like to know more, contact Bill or Judy Monsma at 813-633-8701 or the church office at 813-634-2539.
