Brethren Disaster Ministries
Brethren Disaster Ministries Work
Individuals from our congregation travel to various parts of the United States to work with Brethren Disaster Ministries for clean up and construction following catastrophic natural events (hurricanes, fires, tornadoes, etc.). Some even go on these mission trips annually!
Brethren Disaster Relief Auction
Each year, the Disaster Relief Auction is held at the Lebanon Expo & Fair Grounds. Quilts, toys, decorations, food items, animals, etc. are sold to raise money for disaster relief. As a congregation, we donate money for the purchase of heifers to be sold at the auction. Of course, folks are encouraged to participate in the auction weekend, as well.
The Auction, in cooperation with the Atlantic Northeast and Southern Districts of the Church of the Brethren, began in 1977 and has provided over $12,000,000 in disaster relief to victims of natural and man-made disasters both in the US and internationally.
