Pictures and videos continue to show the widespread flooding and subsequent devastation in the region that includes the city of Midland. MARBC sister church, Calvary Baptist Church in Midland is in the center of the flood zone.
The MARBC is seeking the assistance of sister churches to participate in a CPR relief effort. This relief will include both financial and physical assistance. Calvary Baptist Church will serve as the point ministry in directing that assistance. Pastors Dan and Mark Dickerson express their appreciation to the churches of our association for their prayerful support.
Dan Dickerson, Senior Pastor, shares, “The water came really close to our church and schools. Clean up crews or individuals to help with clean out of flooded basements for members of Calvary and the community would be a huge blessing.”
Here is a list of current needs:
* Clean out crews
* Bottles of water
* Financial donations to purchase food and support supplies for families; for repair, and constructions
* Sanitization materials and equipment
* Reconstruction crews / skilled labor (eventually)
Mark Dickerson, Community Outreach and Family Pastor, is serving as the liaison for coordinating groups seeking to assist the church in the relief efforts.
Please contact Mark to learn how you may provide physical assistance. You may reach him by phone, 989-859-9843, or click the link below to email him.

Checks may also be sent to the MARBC with the designation, “Midland Flood Ministry.”
Calvary Baptist Church encourages us to consider these specific prayer requests:
- Sanford dam to maintain its existing integrity (whatever integrity still remains). It is still holding back a lot of water.
- Praise for no fatalities!
- Safety with electricity and potential gas leaks as people return to flooded homes.
- Health with raw sewage entering homes through flood water.
- Health from Covid 19 as people work closely together to clean up.
- Wisdom to compassionately share the love of Jesus through the gospel to our community
- Wisdom to organize relief efforts for our community
- Encouragement and hope for those who have lost so much
