Relief

Most of us have been riveted to the tragic flooding from Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the surrounding coastal areas. And of course, we probably feel compelled to do something but don't always know where to start. In fact, during Katrina, many well-intended efforts went for nothing because the organizers of those efforts had little idea where supplies and resources should be sent.

Thankfully, much has been learned since then and here at Grace we are taking advantage of what has been gleaned from others. With that in mind we have developed a relationship with a group in Houston on the front lines of this disaster giving us now an opportunity to help.

This website has the information you need to get involved and make sure that what you do or give actually makes a difference in the right places. Check it out and get started. Help will be needed for a long time, and if we'll work together we can make a difference in Jesus' name.
