Disaster Relief

Ways To Help

In tough times like these, we can come together to make a difference. Hurricane Harvey has brought record amounts of rain, flooding, and power outages across the south and continues to dump rain on already flooded areas. Thousands have been displaced, rescued from floodwaters and are in need of simple necessities like food, water, and shelter. Together we can make a difference! We have compiled a list of ways you can help make a difference in the wake of this storm.  Donations made to these organizations below are tax deductible.

Crossroads New Life Tabernacle:  In the comments section, put Harvey Disaster Relief. 100% of your donation will be distributed to disaster relief programs, aide in the immediate needs of families displaced and support groups working in the flooded areas.   (CLICK HERE)

UPCI Relief Fund:  This is a great way to help churches that have been impacted by flooding. The UPCI will disperse money to affected churches in coordination with their district.   (CLICK HERE) 
 
Texas District UPCI:  The South Texas District is mobilizing recovery teams to assess damage and assist churches and individuals in recovery.  The district will also attempt to find temporary places for church services and housing as may be needed in the days ahead.  (CLICK HERE)
 
First Church (Pearland, Tx.):  FEMA, Red Cross, and Feed The Children will be working from the First Church building as soon as they can get to the site.  Your donation help in purchasing rescue and recovery supplies and provide food for rescue and recovery volunteers.  (CLICK HERE)
