    EASTER : Mardi Gras - Ash Wednesday - Lenten Season

    EASTER : Christians celebrate Easter as the resurrection of Christ on the third day after His crucifixion. It is the oldest Christian holiday and the most important day of the church year because of the significance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the events upon which Christianity is based (1 Corinthians 15:3-4,14). The four Gospels make it clear that Jesus was crucified in conjunction with the Jewish Passover (Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-15; John 18:28,39; 1...  Read More...

Hays County Disaster Relief

Many people have been actively praying for rain to replenish the land and our lakes.  It's amazing how tempting it is for us to complain about the water and its effects when it is what we have been asking for and needing.

Sadly, in the wake of the abundance of rain, disaster has struck many families along the river drainage... especially in Hays County TX (Wimberley & San Marcos).  My heart goes out to them. For the rest of us, it can sometimes be difficult to discern how to help encourage those in the disaster and recovery process.

Here are some practical suggestions.  PRAY - GIVE - GO

PRAY for the comfort and peace of families that have lost lives and property.

GIVE to the recovery effort.  There have been several opportunities to donate supplies in the area. Thank you for giving!  This recovery will take weeks!  There have been several churches in the disaster areas hardest hit that are acting as command centers for the relief and recovery effort. (Promiseland Church in San Marcos is hosting Samaritan's Purse, First Baptist Wimberley is hosting the search effort for missing families, C3 church in Buda (south Austin) is also hosting recovery efforts, and Austin Stone church is using their FOR the CITY dream center as staging ground for mission relief.)  Any funds given to this tragedy will be forwarded to these entities.  

GO  Some may have the flexibility to respond with hands-on relief.  One great opportunity is through Samaritan's Purse (yes, the same organization run by Franklin Graham that does the Christmas Shoe Boxes).  They are asking for a three day commitment, but will assist volunteers with housing, food, training, tools, etc.

Thanks again for being responsive to how the LORD leads!
