The Disaster Response Team (DRT) responds when called upon by the Florida Conference, to hurricane and other disaster areas to supply hands-on help along with emotional and spiritual support. We also get involved in local projects, not only for the church itself but also for those in our community who need hands-on help with minor projects.
In addition, we participate in the Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful (KTBB) project by picking up trash alongside the roadway from the Back Gate of Kings Point to Bob Evans restaurant. For our participation, KTBB posts the following signs on 33rd St SE, at each end of the route, giving credit to the church and the DRT.
Normally, the DRT meets monthly on the second Wednesday at 1:00 PM at the church from September through May in Room 19. Sub committees and mission groups meet throughout the year on an as-needed basis.
There are many DRT projects ranging from church-yard cleanup to "first-in" hurricane responders. Regardless of current skill level, everyone can find ways to participate. For everyone, Disaster Response Training is provided by the Florida conference and additional training is conducted where needed.
Both men and women are invited to become members of this important mission. If you would like to become a part of the DRT or receive periodic emails from us, complete and submit the following form. We're happy to welcome you.
