Fast Facts: Last Easter Sunday, April 13, 2020, an EF-3 tornado touched down in East Chattanooga resulting in multiple deaths, injuries, and destruction to homes and businesses. Despite the massive season of change and disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Brainerd Baptist responded quickly to serve their members and community during this new state of emergency.
Led by Pastor Micah Fries, Brainerd Baptist is being the hands and feet of Jesus during this difficult time. In addition to meeting their members’ needs for housing and disaster relief, the church is coordinating volunteers to help with tree and yard clean up, delivering care packages and household items, hosting a blood drive, and collecting donations to meet the immediate needs of their community.
Please pray for those who were impacted by the tornado in Chattanooga. Pray for Pastor Micah and the Brainerd Baptist staff and members as they care for their community and share the gospel with those they are ministering to. Please pray that the volunteers will stay healthy as they venture out to serve others in the midst of the pandemic. And please pray that God will be glorified in Chattanooga in the midst of the devastation and loss.
