9/6/2017 Update: A coalition of local churches in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Church (FGBC) is coming together to serve alongside multiple churches in the Houston area. There will be an introductory meeting with Barb Wooler on Friday, September 8, at 2:00 PM Eastern time. Things are progressing with:

  • A growing coalition comprised of around 15 GBCs
  • Our goal is to send sustained help (teams) to serve over a period of approximately three months.
  • The hope is to deploy around 15 teams from mid-September to mid-December
  • The imminent threat of Hurricane Irma is also a discussion point.

If you or a leader in your church family would like to be part of a conference/online call so that your church can be introduced to being part of this effort, we have scheduled a GoTo Meeting on FRIDAY, September 8, at 2:00 PM Eastern time. Barb Wooler, Director of Crisis Response with Encompass World Partners, who has been to Texas in the effected region this week, will be presenting during the call.

Please RSVP to this Google Doc to receive login information for the online call.
