PDA Responds to Flooding

The Presbyterian Disaster Assistance is responding to the flooding in Nashville. This is from the PCUSA News Service:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Harpeth Presbyterian Church was crawling with members Monday morning (May 3), cleaning up after the nearby Harpeth River overflowed its banks Saturday and Sunday, flooding this historic church in Brentwood, Tenn....

....Also struggling with water is the Village Church, housed in the Woodland Presbyterian Church in East Nashville. The basement of the building, where The Family Room outreach ministries are housed is under four feet of water.

Other area congregations were flooded at ground-level including Westminster, Glencliff, Hillwood and Second. These congregations cleaned up on Sunday, with several canceling services.

First Presbyterian Church of Nashville lost power but held worship at the regular 11:00 hour, confirming five of their 48-member confirmation class.

The presbytery has established a fund, "Presbytery of Middle Tennessee Flood Relief." Contributions may be sent to the presbytery at 318 Seaboard Lane, Ste. 205, Franklin, TN 37067.

  1. John, thanks for posting the Nashville news here. Nationally, we're not hearing much -- probably because the oil slick heading for New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf coast is taking all the attention.
