HAPPENINGS @ FIRST

September 7, 2017

FCC in action:

Over the last few days, we've seen FCC jump in to serve our community's needs, in these ways and others:

* Our volunteers spent several days helping FCC families move out, tear out sheet rock, and start the clean up process

* Received a truck load of supplies and organized the "FCC General Relief Supply" in Knowles Hall

* Helped to deliver supplies to shelters in Galveston, Downtown, St Paul's and the wards, as well as a number of neighbors where neighbors were helping neighbors.

* Picked up volunteers from the airport and driven them

God's provision:

* A family visiting with us on Sunday was moved by what they saw and arranged for a donation of supplies to come to FCC. Thursday we are expecting a 52 ft truck load of supplies, which we are sending to shelters in need.

How you can help at FCC:

We have 10 families whose homes flooded. All are in a stable position but can use your prayer, presence, and encouragement. Here are some practical ways you can help:

* Sign up to volunteer in the weeks ahead. This is a marathon, not a sprint! Link for FCC Volunteer Sign Up

* Come to FCC, pack a few boxes of supplies and take them to a neighborhood or a shelter near you. Here is a list of what shelters near you need: Map of shelters and needs at those shelters

* We need a volunteer coordinator to arrange meals for families for the next couple weeks. If you want to take that on, let Michael, David Mandell or me know.

* If you know of shelters or organizations which need supplies, put them in touch with us. Here is the list of supplies at FCC

Here are other ways to get involved:

Volunteer to help clean out homes or assist in other ways:

crisiscleanup.org

volunteerhouston.org

Volunteer to help out with the Harvey Miracle Team, who are coordinating drivers taking supplies to shelters. If you would like to help with that, let me or David Mandell know!

And ... let us know what you are doing! Let Pastor Dunn know: mdunn@fcchou.org

September 1, 2017 Schedule Update

First Christian Church -

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those that have been impacted by one of the most devastating events in Houston history. As we all continue to work thru the recovery process, we welcome you, your family, neighbors and friends, to join us this Sunday at our 10:30am Worship Service. Our Worship Service will be the only activity on our campus this weekend.

The church will be closed Monday, September 4, 2017 for Labor Day and will re-open with normal business hours Tuesday and following.

First Christian School -

First Christian School will re-open to serve the community on September 7, 2017. Thankfully our loving teachers and staff are safe from harm's way and have begun, like our congregation, the healing and restoration process.

Volunteer Opportunities to help -

Thank you for your compassion and response to our community and neighbors.

A truck with supplies being staged at church will be unloaded at 8:30 on Saturday, September 2. We could use some helping hands. Text Amanda if you can help (832) 715-0082

Family update -

We have 10 families who have flooded, with two homes still threatened. As we know more about needs, we will let you know where you can help.

If you need assistance with moving, please let us know by emailing David Mandell at admin@fcchou.org.

If you would like more information, please call or text David Mandell at 713-205-7373.

First Christian Church and Old School Tutoring Community Partnership -

Old School Tutoring will be offering a tutoring program starting next Tuesday from 3:00pm to 6:30pm and will be adding an all day program starting at 8:00am for those parents that are in need of additional care.

A portion of all proceeds for this program will be donated to First Christian Church to support our efforts to serve those impacted by the disaster.
