Houston 2018 Flood Relief Trip

In April 2018 our team of 14 volunteers joined 22 volunteers from six other Westerly-Stonington-Groton-Charlestown area churches for a week of hurricane flood relief work. This Houston area was under as much as 7 feet of water and mud last August. What a blessing to work together to help others!
