Hurricane Harvey brought much destruction, but in the Spirit inspired words of Nehemiah 2:20... The God of heaven will make us prosper, and we his servants will arise and build... As a church family, we have an opportunity to reach out to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our neighbors in the Coastal Bend with the love and hope of Jesus Christ!
We have set up a Remind 101 App area for you to get immediate alerts of pressing needs. You can join by texting to "81010" and in the message put "@code2-20".
When you get a "code 2-20", let our first reaction be PRAYER. One of the things I have appreciated about our study through Nehemiah was that his words also reflected a change of heart! Let's begin by taking every concern to the Master! Secondly, RESPOND. If you can physically respond to the the immediate need by showing up to lend a physical hand or a comforting hug, then Godspeed. Thirdly, GIVE. Many of our friends even outside of the Coastal Bend are looking for ways that they can help. By giving offerings using our online system and marking it "Code2:20", we will use all of these funds to assist the needs.
Some of our family and friends outside the area have asked if they can send supplies. At the present, the infrastructure in our areas are compromised and the best way to help would be to give and let us use these funds towards things like generators, chainsaws, clean up tools, tarps, water, and housing assistance.
Thanks in Advance!
