In recent years, we have assisted the North Georgia United Methodist Men with the cleanup and rebuilding of homes destroyed by tornadoes in Commerce, GA and floods in Austell, GA. Two teams were sent to areas of North Georgia to help with recovery efforts after the April 2011 tornadoes.
Hickory Flat Church also participated in the rebuilding of Leigh Cottage at the United Methodist Children's Home in Decatur, GA which was destroyed by fire.
Disaster Relief Ministry Teams travel throughout the Southeastern United States providing aid to disaster victims. The aid consists of prayer and listening, manual labor and/or food and shelter. The purpose of this ministry is to be the hands and feet of Christ in times of disaster.
Teams are formed and deployed as needed.
Support the Disaster Relief Ministry:
- Volunteer to be on call and ready when needed
- Provide tools and supplies needed for recovery and reconstruction
- Register for Early Response Training through UMCOR.
- Download CERT form. Submit completed form to Mike McArthur or Eddie Crosby.
