Harvey, Houston, and Our Response

Americans are among the most generous people on earth. Not just generous with money but also with time and effort. I have also seen that many people at our church model  generosity in incredible ways, especially when there is a real need.

As you already know there is a real need in Houston. As a Texan I am so grateful to the many of you who have asked what they can do to help those affected by hurricane Harvey.

For those who desire to help, the best way we can  at such an early stage in the recovery,  is through the donation of money. This idea is universal among people who work in the disaster relief field.  Over the years we have seen many well meaning people seeking to help by collecting supplies to take down to the flooded areas only to see that those donations being scooped up and thrown away or burned.

Here are two articles that can help explain why we recommend that people donate money instead of collecting supplies to take down to Texas.

In the future if people would like to go down to help then we will be putting out information about how you can do that.

WHO DO WE GIVE TO?

Our recommendation for donating is through our Southern Baptist partners the North American Mission Board ( NAMB) or our state convention the SBCV.  100% of your money donated to either of these goes to relief efforts.

Baltimore Team

Partnership

Some of you may not know but we have a partnership with a church in Baltimore.  This is a new church plant seeking to grow in an area that has few churches.  Liberty choir members will be conducting a music camp and working with our partnership church plant in ministering to those in the Baltimore area. They had 45 kids signed up to attend the camp which is huge.

In addition they had 6 new people come to the church Sunday due to the camp that our team was putting on this week. I guess they wanted to see what the church was like and find out more about it.

This is what our teams are all about. Seeking to come alongside a church plant to help them grow in tough areas of the country.

Please pray for our team as they minister to those who they come in contact with.  Pray for :

Fred , Jane , Kim, and Leslie.
