Hurricane Harvey—the most powerful hurricane to hit the United States in more than a decade—left death and destruction in its wake with thousands of homes flooded, businesses lost, residents stranded and dreams shattered. It will take decades for the people of the Gulf Coast of Texas to fully recover from this record-breaking natural disaster.
In addition to praying you can give now! We are partnering with the SBTC because they have disaster relief teams already on the ground in the areas hit by Harvey. Your donations will help efforts directly in the devastated areas.
First Euless has taken 3 trips in the last 6 months to Rockport. On July 22-27th, we will be partnering with Thirst Missions on the Texas Gulf Coast providing support and aid to Matagorda County and its surrounding areas. Matagorda County lies about 100 miles south of Houston and 140 miles northeast of Corpus Christi. It is home to 40,000 people living in small cities and hardworking agricultural communities
