Our hearts are breaking for our friends and family along the Gulf Coast of Texas. As believers, when we see a need, our Father asks us not to sit by and do nothing. We can still help with the clean-up along the Gulf Coast. We believe we can all do something.
Our friends at KCBI in Dallas are planning a Night of Hope to help with the relief effort through Convoy of Hope Wednesday, Sept. 20, at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie. Many of your favorite Christian artists will be there and 100% of the proceeds will go to Convoy of Hope. Click here for tickets and more information.
We are going to list below ways you can be involved, letting you know about opportunities to help our brothers and sisters in their hour of need. If you are aware of other opportunities or your church or civic group is going to do something, please let us know. Send an email with all the information you have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
