In response to the flooding in Houston as a result of Hurricane Harvey, one important thing we can do is to assemble "Cleaning Kits".
Feel free to assemble a couple of these on your own.
We will have an all-church cleaning-kit assembly party immediately following our 1045 worship service on Sunday, September 17. Our goal is 50 Cleaning Kits We will deliver them to our North Texas Conference office in Plano, and they will send them on to UMCOR for use in the Houston flooding and in future floods as well.
Please bring as many of these items as possible between now and September 17. Talk it over in your Sunday School classes and other small groups and divide the list and conquer. Place all items on the stage in the FLC when you bring them. On Thursday, Sept 14, we will take an inventory to see what is still needed and make a shopping run to Home Depot.
