Harvey Volunteer Update – October 1

The rain started to fall just over a month ago, as Hurricane Harvey began to push its way into Houston, and our community would experience unprecedented historic flooding.  Since that time, we have seen our city come together in amazing ways with neighbor helping neighbor, as well as complete strangers working side by side to weather the storm.  We have also seen the love of Christ poured out all over our community through the hard work, generous giving, and ongoing prayers by all who have taken part in the relief efforts at Champion Forest Baptist Church.  Thank you for your help on behalf of all those who were affected by the storms.

Our relief efforts are continuing at CFBC as the Southern Baptist of Texas Disaster Relief Team continues to mobilize volunteers throughout our city.  Since they took over coordinating the work, they have cleared an additional 250 homes, assessed another 335, have 61 projects underway, and have had 49 people accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior!

You can still help.  The SBTC continues to need assessors and volunteers to do mud out work.  If you are interested in helping, please contact the SBTC at:




We would also like to provide all those affected by the storm with this link to some helpful resources related to disaster relief cleanup and assistance:  ReadyHarris Recovery Guide

Please know we continue to pray for our community and are willing to serve anyway we can.
