Hurricane Harvey

EFCA ReachGlobal Crisis Response is uniquely positioned to bring the hope of Christ following Hurricane Harvey. GraceWay Church is part of the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA).

The full extent of the storm’s impact on families and communities served by local EFCA churches across the Texas coast is still unknown. Initial assessments show almost every EFCA church in the Houston region (15 total) has families flooded out of homes, and extensive damage in the communities in which they serve. So, how can we help?

Pray

  • For peace and provision for the many families experiencing flooding in the Houston area.
  • For local EFCA recovery and gospel outreach efforts to reach the  hurting and the lost.
  • For effective service and outreach opportunities to the city’s many immigrants and refugees, as Houston is the most racially and ethnically diverse city of the 10 largest U.S. metropolitan areas.
  • For the Church across the country to mobilize people and resources  for a sustained, long-term response.

Serve

Organize a team to serve affected families, invest in relationships and impact Houston with the gospel. Teams of limited size will be accepted beginning September 17. Contact Pastor Rod if you are interested in being part of a team from GraceWay Church.

Give

Given the extent of the damage in Houston, and the surrounding area, the EFCA’s goal is to raise $1 million for response efforts.

GraceWay Church is accepting donations for EFCA ReachGlobal through September 17. A collection box is located in the church foyer. Checks can be made out to GraceWay Church.

We will also host a Brat Stand on Saturday, September 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Ballweg Family Pharmacy. All proceeds will go to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
