Hurricane Harvey Response
HOW CAN WE HELP THOSE IMPACTED BY HURRICANE HARVEY?
We are in communication with pastors, churches, and strategic leaders along the coast area affected by Hurricane Harvey. Right now, in many places people are still waiting for the water to recede for the long term effort of recovery to begin. Below you will find many great ways to be the hands and feet of Christ through financial contributions, donations of needed items, and serving evacuees here in San Antonio. We will keep the church updated about future opportunities.
Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF)
