Hurricane Relief Outreach

I spent some time yesterday talking to the folks at Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge. They were sharing with me some of the damage that Hurricane Gustav did to their area and the relief efforts they are taking on to minister to the people in their chrurch and community.

I am so excited that NewSpring has the opportunity to step up and help this church and their community in a major way.  We are going to load some large trucks and send this church the items that their community needs next week.

This weekend we will be collecting the following goods at our Anderson and Greenville locations before and after our services…and then on Monday in both locations from 8-10 on Monday.

  • Canned food
  • Bottled Water
  • Tarps for roofs

We also would love to have some volunteers help us to sort these items, pack them up, and send them to Louisiana next week. If you are interested in helping on Sunday or any day next week, please contact our outreach pastor, David Nimmons, at 226-6585 or
