Grace Church is partnering with Arise Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, to help those in need following Hurricane Harvey. We are also preparing to partner with local churches in Florida following Hurricane Irma.

We sent four people to Houston to help unload and distribute emergency goods to more churches in the area. Below are a few pictures of the team from their first day. Thank you for praying for Doug Keller, Don Westman, Rick and Liz Rumora, and the people of Arise Baptist Church as they ministered together. Pray that the church would continue to have Gospel opportunities in their area.

Those from the Grace Church family who wish to help cover the cost of the trip may donate on Grace's website or in our offering boxes around the building. Please designate your gift to Arch Ministries - Hurricane Help, and it will be directed to offset trip costs.

We are committed to helping our southern brothers and sisters in Christ for the long term and will keep our church family updated on ways to help!

The next way we can help is through material goods. The church office will be collecting certain nonperishable items to be trucked to churches in both Texas and Florida. If you'd like to donate, please bring items from the list below to the church office during the week of September 11-15, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Please restrict your donations to these five items only as they will be the most helpful:

  • peanut butter
  • canned tuna fish
  • canned Vienna sausage
  • canned fruit
  • bottled water

We will then arrange for the items to be delivered to the warehouse to be distributed from there. Thank you!
