Hurricane Preparedness 2022

As Hurricane Ian begins its path toward Florida, the Community Services and Disaster Response department would like to remind you of some important safety measures that you can take to equip yourself and those around you.

  1. Please call upon the Lord to keep us all safe.
  2. Listen attentively to the news and weather channels in your area, and obey all the warnings about hurricanes and any other natural disasters coming to Florida.
  3. Download the FEMA app on your smart device.
  4. Help your family and neighbors prepare for the worst. I encourage you to follow these recommendations for preparation:
  5. Clear brush and mobile objects from around the house.
  6. Get your window shutters ready for hanging.
  7. Stock up on non-perishable foods and water (two-week supply), and pet food & supplies if you have pets.
  8. Gather items such as flashlights & batteries, portable phone chargers, portable radio, coal or camping stoves, blankets, first aid & medication, basic toiletries, whistle, face masks, and appropriate clothing and footwear.
  9. Fill your gas tank and have cash on hand.
  10. Secure your medications and important documents such as personal I.D.’s, birth & marriage certificates, credit cards, house and other property titles, and passports.
  11. Update your homeowner’s insurance or obtain it if you do not have one.
  12. Have an escape plan, should there be an evacuation order for your community.
  13. Obey all the instructions of the Governor’s office.

Please take some time to prepare yourself; the following are some valuable resources:

While we cannot avoid a natural disaster, we can help minimize its impact on ourselves and our neighbors.

About Us


The Adventurer Club is a Seventh-day Adventist Church-sponsored ministry open to all families of children in grades 1-4. Our mission is to support parents and caregivers in leading and encouraging their children in a growing, joyful love relationship with Jesus Christ.
The first few years of a child’s life sets the stage for their future.  For parents/families of pre-K through fourth grade children, our Adventurer Clubs provide a safe place to encourage the development of the necessary social and interpersonal skills they need, in an environment that promotes Christian values and responsibilities.
Families will learn a variety of topics together, from character building, nature, hobbies, safety, and much more. This club also has parenting tips and resources through the family network and is designed to help you be the best parent/caregiver you can be as you partner with your child and other families to grow your kids to be the best they can be. Most clubs meet twice a month.
