Schrader Lane church helps with Nashville flood relief
NewsChannel 5 in Nashville, Tenn., reports:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A fellowship room in the Schrader Lane Church of Christ looks more like a convenient store.
Food boxes to feed a family of four for a week line one wall, while bottled water nearly ceiling high is tucked in the corner. Across the room, shovels, brooms, mops, buckets and cleaning spray line another wall. Across from that there’s diapers, underwear, clothing shoes – anything flood victims may need to get back to a semi-normal way of life.
“Everybody in there is in a God-giving spirit,” said Joyce Bumper, whose East Nashville home sustained flood damage. “I’m grateful I heard about it.”
While the church had 32 families to take care of in the weeks following the flood, they’re focused on a community wide effort.
“It’s a blessing to them. It’s one of the things we feel like we should do and we want to do it well,” said an assistant minister Timothy McCleskey.
