Puerto Rico Mission Trip and Fundraiser

Our church is sponsoring a service project for volunteers to help in the ongoing hurricane recovery effort in Puerto Rico. Interim Pastor Rev. Jeff Stinehelfer is organizing the project, working with officials of the United Church of Christ (partners with the Christian Church, Disciples of Christ), and with Ryder Memorial Hospital, the highly regarded UCC medical mission in Humacao, PR. The "eye" of Hurricane Maria passed directly over this southeast region of the island. We will assist recovery of the hospital facility, as well as local families designated by hospital administrators. The opportunity is open to all adults and youth, without regard to religious affiliation, skill level, or previous experience in disaster relief. Individuals will largely be responsible for their own expenses. The tentative plan is to depart December 26, work for about a week, and return home early in the new year. Jeff has led twenty such mission trips in the U.S., Mexico, Central America, Haiti, and Puerto Rico, including recovery from floods, tornados, and hurricanes. Those interested in participating are invited to contact him for more details at 240-988-5996, or pletchstine@verizon.net
