Haymarket Church partners with the people of St. Thomas United Methodist Church to send adult mission teams to respond and help people recover in the wake of disasters. The folks at St. Thomas call this the START Team.
The START Team has been unable to travel for the past year due to the pandemic. They missed being able to serve our Lord by helping people who have experienced damage to their homes due to flooding from hurricane Florence.
They are currently in the process of trying to get a group together to travel to coastal North Carolina to pick up where they left off last year (before the pandemic). Most of what they were doing was flooring , drywall, and other interior work, although other tasks cannot be ruled out. They welcome all skill levels and welcome people who are only able to work part of the time the group will be there – if you are willing to serve, there is a place for you. Their tentative dates for their upcoming mission trip are June 6-12, 2021. They are very aware of the status of the pandemic and will continue monitoring this before and during the trip.
They will be gathering for an organizational meeting in the near future, probably via Zoom. If you’d like to participate in this service opportunity, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help you get connected!
