Opportunities to Give and Serve in Chattanooga



A group of PCA churches in the Chattanooga area are partnering to minister to those in the Ooltewah area who were impacted by the Easter tornadoes. This information is fairly fluid, with work days being planned most Saturdays and some work continuing through the week. If you would like to learn how you can become part of this effort through volunteering or giving, please check out Covenant Presbyterian Church's website. Much of the work is being done in the Auburn Hills Trailer Park in Ooltewah, which was devastated on Easter Sunday. Please continue to pray for the families impacted and for those who are showing Christ's love through acts of mercy.

MNA Disaster Response provided Sheds of Hope Kits that were erected in the Covenant Presbyterian Church parking lot to provide a secure location for families to store their belongings.

Chainsaw Training at Rome Warehouse


Image result for mna disaster response keith perry chainsawMNA Disaster Response Warehouse will host a chainsaw training on Saturday, April 25, 2020 from 8am until 5 pm EDT. Keith Perry, MNA Disaster Response Florida Specialist, will serve as lead instructor.

This Mission to North America chain saw training course was developed to provide disaster response volunteers with a solid foundation for safe and efficient saw operation while limbing and bucking for tree debris removal.


Safety is the most critical objective of this course. Your safety, the safety of your fellow volunteers, the safety of the public, and property protection should be a part of every plan and action you take. Careful study and practice of chain saw operations will improve your own abilities and help you identify your limitations to ensure safe saw operation.

Image result for mna disaster response keith perryThis course is designed to rain beginning and experienced sawyers to perform and work safely and efficiently. The course has classroom sessions and hands-on field work. The classroom session will consist of presentations, Q&A, and quizzes. The field work allows students to demonstrate their safety knowledge and safely use skills with a chainsaw.

We will not fell trees as part of this class.
