Ways You Are Helping
Thank you for how you have stepped up and responded to the needs around us, as we have been facing this challenge in greater Houston. I have been humbled and encouraged by the sacrificial efforts and generosity of our church family and our great city. We have initially responded to the disaster by serving our neighbors and congregation, sheltering 16 refugee families in the Quillian Gym at our Westchase Campus, staging distribution centers for families in need of supplies in the Youth Building at Westchase and at our Neighbors in Action Community Center in Port Houston. Many of you have also responded to needs in your neighborhoods and have partnered with other churches and non-profits to serve. This is the body of Christ in action.
