Christ Point is joining other Corpus Christi churches to maximize our efforts to serve Galveston and Houston. We’re in contact with churches and Christian-based organizations in the hurricane area. Right now things are pretty chaotic as these groups get their bearings and prioritize needs. Fortunately, our government has done a pretty good job of suppling food, water, and emergency housing in the immediate aftermath so there is not a great need for clothing, water, and food at this point.
- Pray — That’s obvious!
- Give — Gift cards are the perfect way to donate to individuals in need right now. Lowe’s, Home Depot, Wal-Mart, and HEB are great stores to buy cards from. Gas cards are also helpful. We’d like to give out a bunch of these cards Monday during our survey trip. If you want a tax deduction, write a check to Christ Point and we’ll buy gift cards for you. You can bring your donations to the church office during the week or give them to Dan or Irene this Sunday.
- Plan — Plan to make a trip to Houston in the coming weeks and months. It’s close enough that we can travel on the weekends so you won’t have to miss work or school. We may also plan some longer trips as the need arises.
