Relief for Houston (Hurricane Harvey)

As Christians, we believe there is a call for God’s people to support and uplift anyone in need. In recent events, there are many people who are facing life-threatening conditions in Southern Houston due to the devastating damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. Countless houses have been destroyed and tens of thousands have been left homeless without food and basic necessities.

Imago Dei invites you to join us in helping to provide relief for the residents of Houston affected by this disaster. The Acts 29 network has provided several different ways you can help. Please consider helping in whatever capacity you’re able:

How Can We Help

PRAY

Praise God that unity and collaboration amongst churches in Houston and others has been great. Pray for our Acts 29 churches as they have a unique missional opportunity to be the visible church, serving people in need.

GIVE

Acts 29 is giving $50,000 towards this appeal and we hope that you & your churches will consider contributing. Donations will be used to provide relief and recovery assistance to individuals, families, and churches impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Finances will be the biggest need as Acts 29 Houston prepares for the recovery effort.
Here are three ways for churches and individuals to give:
US donors can text keyword HARVEYRELIEF to 51555 and follow prompts to give via credit card
Anyone can give online at www.clearcreek.org/harveyrelief
Anyone can mail a check to Clear Creek Community Church 999. N. Egret Bay Blvd. League City, TX
If you would like to wire funds please email trichardson@clearcreek.org for instructions.
For options 2 and 3, please indicate it’s from an Acts 29 source to help with tracking and accountability

SERVE

Houston Church Planting Network (containing many Acts 29 churches) is compiling a list of churches from outside of Houston that may be interested in bringing in a team to serve, donating supplies, etc., as the waters recede.
If you are interested you can visit http://www.hcpn.org/harveyhelp to give us your information. The recovery effort will be going on for months, so please be patient as they get coordinated for long-term efforts. This will be a marathon and not a sprint. Rescue & Relief are happening now but recovery will go on for months and they envision needing outside support if people are interested.
