The people of The Chapel have a rich and significant history of heartfelt and substantial responses when disasters hit, both domestically and internationally. Past examples include the tsunami in Indonesia, 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, and the earthquake in Haiti to name just a few.
The unprecedented disasters in Texas and Florida certainly call us to once again respond with prayer, giving, and partnering to assist people, even as the extent of the crisis is still unfolding.
We are gathering information, studying the best ways we can help, and coordinating our efforts as a multi-site church. In addition, we are in communication with key leaders both in our region and in the impacted areas to assess how we might optimize our efforts to extend Christ’s love in relief assistance. We will partner and invest with churches and organizations who are gospel-centered and who can ensure that both our financial and people resources are best used to truly help people in Jesus’ name.
Our first action is prayer. Our second action is giving. In the near future, we certainly hope to be able to mobilize people to go and serve, as local leaders in Texas and Florida help us to understand the best timing and the most strategic work to engage.
If you would like to give through The Chapel towards hurricane relief efforts, we welcome you to do so in one of the following two ways:
- Use the special giving envelopes available in the worship centers on Sundays
- Give online by clicking the link below
Let us continue to respond and love well in the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ who calls us to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with Him (Micah 6:8).
We have chosen to partner with Clear Creek Community Church in Houston, Texas. They are part of the Houston Church Planting Network and already have people mobilized to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
