Ways to Help
- Pray for the people of the affected areas.
- Give funds to assist the people of those communities. You can do this by sending funds to three sources:
- Union Baptist Association, located in metro Houston, Texas. ubahouston.org/disaster (they are the boots on the ground. They already know the needs and have a handle on their own churches and people)
- Tennessee Baptist Mission Board. http://tndisasterrelief.org/contributions/
- North American Mission Board. https://www.namb.net/send-relief/disaster-relief/hurricane-harvey
3. Give supplies. Presently, we know of three churches that have made arrangements to have trailers on site to take supplies to Mt. Juliet, TN where it will be then shipped to the affected areas. These churches are:
- Ooltewah Baptist Church, 5514 Ooltewah-Ringgold Road, Ooltewah, TN 37363, (423) 238-4831.
- Stuart Heights Baptist Church, 1505 Cloverdale Dr. Hixson, TN 37343, (423) 877-2643.
- Brainerd Hills Baptist Church, 6611 E. Brainerd Road, Chattanooga, TN 37421, (423) 892-6645.
4. Train to go and help: This will be a long recovery, and volunteers will be needed. The best way to help in this way is to be trained before you go. If you are interested in attending training please let our association’s office know.
5. Ooltewah Baptist Church is challenging the other churches in the Hamilton County Baptist Association to see who can collect 200 recover buckets the quickest. Let the challenge begin!
