Hurricane Relief

 

 


 

September 1 Update:

City Life Church is both praying and giving to Hurricane Harvey relief. As the opportunities continue to develop, we will keep you updated.

Below are OUR CURRENT 4 WAYS to be a part:

PRAYER

Take a moment and simply pray in faith for the health and healing of those affected by the hurricane. Our prayers TRULY make a difference.


FINANCIAL GIFTS (MOST URGENT)

City Life Church partners with Convoy of Hope and North Texas Assemblies of God, providing relief along the coast. Please give through this link and write in, “Harvey,” and everything given will go directly to hurricane relief.
City Life uses these particular partner organizations because they work directly through local churches. The local church is where we believe some of the best ministry occurs, because after the other relief organizations leave town, the local church remains. Plus, the message of Jesus’ love is shared through these local church relief efforts. Many of these churches are pastored by personal friends of mine.

Watch this video update regarding how our gifts are being used through Convoy of Hope:


Yesterday (Thursday), Vice President Pence and Governor Abbott toured our Convoy of Hope point of distribution center and encouraged our volunteers.

VOLUNTEER in FORT WORTH:

City Lifers are urged to register as volunteers now. To volunteer for the Fort Worth Harvey Relief efforts, register at Voly.org. Please do so ASAP, and then request your background check. After your background check has been completed, volunteer opportunities will appear.
 
City Life Church will be focusing our volunteer efforts on evacuees sheltered at the Downtown Convention Center, just a few blocks from our City Life Church campus. Currently, we are awaiting this to open up to us, but we expect it in just a few days. MORE TO COME ON THIS!

DONATIONS:

City Life is asking that all donations go through Goodwill locations in Fort Worth. Locate a donation center.
Specific items needed include:
  • Baby diapers and formula
  • Men/women/children socks and underwear in new packaging
  • Blankets and towels
  • Plus-size clothing


 

“I just can’t stop thinking and praying about the Hurricane disaster situation along the Gulf Coast.

 

NOW is the time for the body of Christ AND the City of Fort Worth to come together to do the things that REALLY matter. As our opportunities to serve begin to unfold in the days ahead, my challenge is to get uncomfortable and do a little more than is expected. Our Christian faith and the compassion of our city is being put to the test. Let’s PASS in God’s eyes, above our own eyes.”
