“We’ve been in recovery mode ever since hurricane Katrina devastated our community,” commented Ron Magee, Inreach Team Director at First Baptist. “Now it’s time for us to rise up and make a difference in our church and in our community. This concert and our partnership with Habitat for Humanity is one way we’re doing this.”
“We appreciate First Baptist Church’s leadership in putting this event together,” stated Wendy McDonald, Bay-Waveland Habitat’s executive director. “While we are deeply grateful for the volunteers who’ve come from around the world to help us, we’re delighted to see more local partnerships with community leaders like First Baptist.”
