Hurricane Harvey is the first major hurricane to affect Texas since hurricane Ike back in 2008. The damage from this storm has been substantial and recovery efforts in south Texas will be ongoing for many years. If you would like help with recovery efforts from this storm the first step is to pray. Pray for all of those affected by the storm as well as for those who are working in relief efforts. Pray also for yourself that God would reveal to you how He wants you to respond. If you would like to give towards the relief efforts here at Georgetown you may, just be sure to mark your donation appropriately, and we will make sure it goes to the right place. Also Georgetown has volunteered to be a part of the "Adopt a Church" program as a part of SBTC Disaster Relief ministries. Through this program we have been paired up with East Gill Missionary Baptist Church in Beaumont. Their church building was severely damaged from flooding, we have been partnered with them to help assist in restoring their place of worship. So that they can have a place to meet and minister to the community around them. The leadership here are currently working with the leadership at East Gill and plans to help are being made, more details on how to be involved will be made available soon.
