There is a place for everyone to help at times like these. Judson Baptist has been involved in all facets of hurricane, flood, and disaster recovery in Louisiana. From hosting a shelter and D-SNAP after the flood of 2016 in Walker to serving thousands of meals in Sulphur and assisting in the rebuild of a neighborhood in Grand Lakes after the hurricanes of 2020. You do not have to have prior training or experience to help with recovery, though it is valuable. For those wishing to receive formal training the Louisiana Baptist Convention sponsors Disaster Relief Training several times a year and ELBA (see below) has a disaster relief team that travels across the country.
The Family Village, formerly The Foster Village, is a donation center located at Judson Baptist Church for items that will equip local children who have been separated from their homes in a traumatic event all free of charge! TFV is looking for volunteers and donations.
The Judson Baptist family often teams up with other church families in the Eastern Louisiana Baptist Association to do local missions. In 2020 we worked with several churches to prepare and distribute thousands of meals to families who normally received school lunches but couldn't because of the school shut down. We all work together for disaster relief projects and major evangelistic events such as a community egg hunt with 3,000 people or bringing a youth evangelist into the high schools and middle schools where hundreds of youth heard the gospel.
