MDS Trips

Responding, Rebuilding, Restoring

Groups from the Mennonite Church of Normal frequentlyMDSlogo2 volunteer their time for Mennonite Disaster Service projects.  See the “news” in the right sidebar for upcoming and recent trips.

Mennonite Disaster Service is the organized response of Mennonite churches to the needs of “neighbors” in times of natural disasters. We endeavor, in the spirit of Christian love, to follow Christ’s example by giving time, talents, and energies to help relieve suffering caused by disasters. We understand the ministries of listening, clean-up, repair, and reconstruction to be an example of the “cup of cold water” given to those in need “in the name of Christ.”
