Labor of Love
Thank you church family for all of the donations. We are still accepting and sorting donations today from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. Also, those who signed up to serve, we will be going departing from the church today at 12 noon to assist families whose homes were damaged. Join us! #LaborDayLove #Relief
Bethel’s Global Reach is in need of more help. We have a team going by again today at 9 am. We had some scheduled to help out at Redemption Church ( see below), but we will look and see if we can join them on Saturday.

Bethel’s Global Reach
Our ministry partner, Bethel’s Global Reach (Southwest Houston), will need volunteers for distribution of food, clothing, baby supplies, etc. starting Thursday (tomorrow), Friday and Saturday. They also need donations of Baby/Toddler clothing, diapers and feminine products. The address is 12660 Sandpiper Drive, Houston Texas, 77035. We will get started at 8:30 am.
The Forge for Families
Another ministry that we partner with is called The Forge for Families (forgeforfamilies.org). They are presently operating as a Red Cross Relief Shelter. The good news is that they currently have several volunteers that are already in place and as of today, they do not need any volunteers at the time. They do, however, need assistance with other supplies. Here are some of their needs:
30 and 50-gallon trash bags
Simply green cleaner
The Forge for Families is located at 3435 Dixie Dr. Houston, Texas, TX 77021. If you are unable to take donations directly to their facility, we will accept them on Sunday between services.
Redemption Church (redemptionhou.com) is located inside of the loop where they experienced a significant amount of flooding. Many homes near the church need to be gutted:
Here is a message from the Pastor:
We’re meeting each morning at 830am our building (8915 Timberside Dr, Houston, TX 77025) to send out crews again. There are countless houses around us that need cleanup help, many of them elderly folks with no one else to help. We can show you what to do–just show up, and we’ll put you to work making a real impact for this great city.
If you can, bring work gloves, a hammer or crow bar, and a utility knife.
If you are interested in serving on this project, some from Harvest Point will be there on Friday, 9/1/2017. Text me at 713-320-4334, so that I can let the Pastor and his team know.
Any other donations can be accepted on Sunday between services.
I will keep you posted on other volunteer opportunities. We will be involved in these types of projects for many months to come.
