How can you Help?

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. 

Be sure to check back here often!

East Gill Missionary Baptist Church is located at 410 E Gill St in Beaumont. The community that this church is in experienced extensive flooding over the course of many days. At one point the water line was up to the roof line of this church. Georgetown has committed to the long term goal of rebuilding and or repairing this church's building so that they may have a safe and effective place to worship and share the gospel in their community. Join us in prayer for the Pastor of East Gill, Jearon D. Chew, the members, and the families of East Gill, pray for God's wisdom as plans are made, and most if all pray that, through everything, the Gospel will be proclaimed to the people and community surrounding East Gill Missionary Baptist Church. If you would like to donate to help the people of East Gill, please do so either by making a note on your donation or bringing it directly to the church office. 


We have had the opportunity to go down to Beaumont and help with some the recovery efforts there at East Gill and in the surrounding neighborhoods. Unfortunately for East Gill, once we began tearing out the damaged material, the assessment was made that their building had been damaged beyond repair. We have been working closely with Bro. Jaeron about where God is leading them next. Join us in praying for God's direction and provision for East Gill. 

Be ready and watching as there will be more opportunities to go and serve East Gill and the city of Beaumont.
