Robertsdale church helps Baldwin County flood victims

Volunteers at The First Baptist Church of Robertsdale have been working day and night to help Baldwin County flood victims after the severe thunderstorms pounded the Gulf Coast Tuesday night.

The church is even paying for some 70 victims to stay at an area motel until they can get their homes back to normal.

Sunday, May 4, volunteers were packing up lunches to take to those victims.

The church is also heading out in to the community to give out care packages to more flood victims.

They’re also sending supplies to Mississippi for those who have been hit by tornadoes.

Several groups from out of town have even come here to work with the church on disaster relief. One group from South Carolina is even staying  at the church while they help local flood victims.

“We have a team of Southern Baptist Relief workers coming in, and they’ll be here this week and for the weeks to come, and they’re going to be mudding out houses and helping people that have been flooded,” said Jeff Copeland, the church’s pastor.

Jeff Copeland is leading this selfless mission of caring, he said it’s all part of what his church stands for.

“We love not only in word, but in deed and in action,” said Copeland. “So we share God’s word, but we also share God’s word and action.”

If you’d like to volunteer with the church, you can call them at 251-947-4362 or check out their website at firstrobertsdale.com.
