  • Dear leader,

    We want to encourage you to attend and invite other key volunteers to take part in this upcoming training event with Samaritan's Purse.

    yours in Christ,

    The Respond Ottawa team

    www.respondottawa.ca

    This fall, from coast to coast, we’re introducing churches and people like you to the world of Canadian Disaster Relief

     

    When Samaritan’s Purse responds to a disaster, we rely on volunteers to bring hope to hurting families. They tirelessly mud out flooded basements, clean up hurricane and tornado-ravaged yards, sift through ashes to find treasured belongings, and befriend survivors—all in Jesus’ Name.

     

    Do you want to learn more about what it means to be a Canadian Disaster Relief volunteer? Does your church want to be better-equipped to serve in times of need?

     

    If so, you’re invited to our Ottawa volunteer training event on October 15.

     

    Date: Saturday, Oct. 15

    Time: 9 am to 4 pm

    Cost: FREE

    Location: The Metropolitan Bible Church (2176 Prince of Wales Dr)

    Lunch provided

    Individuals and church groups welcome

     

    At this one-day event, we will:

    ·        Answer the who, what, where, when, and how of volunteering with Samaritan’s Purse

    ·        Provide resources for interacting with people affected by trauma

    ·        Discuss ways to be spiritually and emotionally prepared to serve

    Please register to confirm your attendance. And we invite you to spread the news! Share this email with church members, friends, and family who also might be interested.

    Together, let’s be ready to serve our neighbors well in times of crisis, with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.
