Hurricane Relief

Pray, Give, and Donate Today

 

In the wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, we want to reach out to those who have been affected with the love of Christ. Below you'll find several ways you can help with the relief effort. 


Go on a Houston Relief Trip

 

We're sending out teams on four trips to Texas in October and early November. Those who go will be coming alongside volunteers from Current Church in Katy, Texas—just west of Houston—to help families in their communities with whatever their needs are. Currently, this mostly looks like digging mud out of homes, tearing out waterlogged drywall, helping clean homes, and cleaning up debris. Flexibility is key, as needs on the ground are changing on a regular basis, so what the teams do may change without notice. This will be hard manual labor, so we ask that all those applying be in good health and able to work hard for 4 consecutive days.

 

Details

 

Who: Ages 18+ and in good health

Timeframe: Leave early Monday morning, return late Saturday night

Transportation: We will be driving 12 passenger vans. (14 hour trip)

Cost: $300 and spending money for meals on the trip to Texas and back

Lodging: Teams will be staying at Current Church, sleeping in sleeping bags on the floor. You may bring a camping mattress with you if you want.

Items Needed for Each Flood Bucket:

6 Scouring Pads 

6 Sponges

3 Scrub Brushes 

1 Disinfectant Dish Soap, 18 or 24 ounce (ex. Dawn or Ajax)*

1 Multi-Surface Cleaner, 24 ounce (ex. Pine Sol)*

1 Disinfectant Wipes, 75 count*
