What Can I Do?


The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an unprecedented situation in our Church’s history.  We don’t have all of the answers, but we are paying close attention to scientific experts, civic leaders, and we are, of course, praying for wisdom as we move through this time.


What we do know is that our God does not promise us a life free of trials, but does promise to walk with us and work for good through these times.  We also know that, within our church family and our greater community there are people who are more vulnerable than others and we are called to care for them.


As we all navigate the unfamiliar and evolving information, we want you to know that your safety is our utmost concern.  You are the best advocate for yourself and your family.  We encourage you to take whatever precautions necessary for your own physical and emotional well-being. 


As a church we will collectively do our best to continue our mission to eradicate homelessness in whatever form it presents itself by seeking to provide spiritual, emotional, and physical support to those in our midst.  We will need your help to do that.


Here are some ways in which we are responding and ways in which you can help.  


Care for One Another
-If you need assistance with errands, grocery pick-up, meals, prayers etc, let us know: CLICK HERE
-If you are willing to help with those who need assistance:  CLICK HERE


Care for Our Neighbors
-We are in communication with school districts about how me may be able to assist students who rely on free lunch programs and will keep you informed as we have details. 
-Check on your neighbors and friends.  Now is a time to use the blessing of technology to remain connected.


Preventive Measures
-If you are sick, please stay home.
-WASH YOUR HANDS!  This has been repeatedly communicated as the very best defense that we have to prevent speed.
-Avoid touching your face. 
-Take care of your general health.
-Stay informed.  You can find the most updated information from the CDC and Texas Health and Human Services.


Prayer
We believe that prayer is powerful and connects us over space and time.  Be in prayer for those who are sick, isolated, or scared. Pray for the peace of wisdom to reach into all of the corners of our community, our nation, and our world.
