I am sure that like me you have been deeply saddened and profoundly moved by the plight of the flood victims in Houston and Florida. As I watch the news footage of so many people who have lost so much, everything inside of me says, “What can I do to help?” The good news is that we as a church are already helping.
Our partner in ministry, Convoy of Hope, arrived in Texas on August 24th and has already distributed more than 500,000 pounds of emergency relief supplies worth over 1 million dollars that has served more than 20,000 storm survivors. The gift that The Chapel provided Convoy through your generosity has been multiplied by them through key partnerships to be valued at about $350,000 which is at work in Houston as well as in other disaster sites around the world. So know that we as a church have been very present already in the midst of what Texas Governor Greg Abbott has called “one of the largest disasters America has ever faced.” Our Christ Together network includes 81 partner churches in Houston who will also serve as distribution centers and places of help in the weeks and months ahead.
We will be freeing up additional funds as a church to help all that Convoy and Christ Together are doing in Texas and Florida and will very likely send teams of volunteers to help with clean-up and rebuilding when the time is right. Right now, what I am asking all of our Chapel family to do is first and foremost pray for God’s hand to move in the lives of the people who have been affected by this terrible disaster and for the churches who are standing in the gap in the midst of so much tragedy. As deeply sad as this event is, it is also an opportunity for the people of God to shine brightly, as I know that we will. Additionally, I am asking all of us to continue to be generous in our tithes and offerings to help us free up even more funds in the days and weeks to come. If you feel led by God to serve or give in even greater capacities toward this disaster, please email us at email@example.com for more information.
May God truly lead and guide our church to be a breath of help and compassion to those who desperately need it, and may we be part of God’s healing and restoration in Texas and Florida.
The Chapel is one church gathering on several different campuses across Chicagoland. We are passionately pursuing God and his kingdom together, and are excited to enter into all God has for us. We would love for you to join us and experience all God has in store for you!
