transportation is all arranged!

MISSION WORK TRIP TO CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA - Would you like to
become part of a blitz rebuild in Cedar Rapids Iowa during the
week of May 2-8? In mid-June 2008, the Cedar River that runs
through the heart of Cedar Rapids crested at 19 feet above flood stage
and 24 feet above the average water level. This devastating flood
affected more than 5,000 residences, more than 1,000 businesses,
and nearly 50 non profit organizations and churches. Clean-up and
rebuilding efforts have been underway since then, but the need for
volunteer and monetary support will continue for many more years.
The RCA is joining with 9 other Church World Service communions
to rehabilitate 17 homes over the course of six weeks. (this is an
ecumenical build like we did in New Orleans last year!) Grace is
looking for 15 volunteers so check out the table in the narthex where
there is a sign up sheet and a handout with more details on the
project. Presently, we do not have information concerning the
accommodations. This trip can be completed in less than 7 hours so
we will not need lodging on the way down and back.
