Hurricane Harvey has left the Gulf Coast devastated and the small town of Rockport was one of the hardest hit. CrossRidge Church has adopted Coastal Oaks Church in Rockport, TX to aid in their relief and rebuilding efforts. Coastal Oaks has been hearing from the community about work they are needing help with. Anything from cutting down trees and limbs, to hauling off debris, to demo work, and more. We are going to send teams down to Rockport to aid in these work orders and knock out as many as we can. The plan right now is to take several short trips as long as they still need the assistance.
The trip is free. We will carpool down to Rockport together. CrossRidge will reimburse all gas expenses. We will find places to eat around town. You will need to bring money to pay for all meals while we are down there. We will be staying at Coastal Oaks Church gym on the floor in a classroom. So you will need to bring something to sleep on(sleeping bag, sleeping mat, cot, air mattress, etc). There are shower facilities available for us to clean up each day.
WHO CAN COME
Anyone 16 years and up who is willing and able to do some manual work helping a sister church and shining the light of Jesus to a community who needs the help and hope we have to give!
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING
Coastal Oaks Church has had most of the tools and supplies donated that we will need to do the work that will be asked of us. As we get closer, we will have a better idea of what jobs they will be giving us and will let you know if there are tools we need you to bring. We may be in need of a large trailer, capable of hauling off large debris if you have one we can use.
