We believe that prayer is our first and best response in times of distress. Please join us in prayer for those affected by natural disasters around the world.
Our Disaster Relief Fund is currently the best way our church can demonstrably respond and provide for those affected by natural disasters.
It's our calling to roll up our sleeves and let our light shine as the body of Christ. We want to love our neighbors in the weeks and months to come as they clean up and rebuild in the wake of disaster. In the aftermath of disasters, we invite you to join one of our work teams or serve with one of our partner organizations.
Stories from the Storm
Stories of both devastation and hope continue to pour from areas affected by Hurricane Harvey. One story especially dear to our church family is that of former Stonebriar staff member Pablo Monroy. In his 6 plus years at Stonebriar, Pablo served as associate pastor of Stonebriar en Español and Missional Living. Now a pastor with Second Baptist Church in Houston, Pablo and his family have lost everything to Hurricane Harvey. Even in the midst of crisis, Pablo has seized the opportunity to show the love of Christ to his community.
Thank you for loving, caring, and praying for our neighbors. Please check back regularly for updates.
Project: Puerto Rico
As a church family, our hearts are broken by the ongoing suffering in Puerto Rico. On September 18, 2017, Hurricane Maria struck the island of Puerto Rico as a Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 155 miles per hour. It was the strongest storm to hit the island since 1928 and the tenth strongest Atlantic storm ever recorded. Thanks to your generous gifts to our Disaster Relief Fund, we packed and shipped a large container of food and emergency supplies to the island. Thank you for helping us extend the love of Christ to people in dire need.
Help for Harvey
Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast on August 25, 2017 with wind speeds above 130 miles per hour. For days, the storm lingered and poured record rainfall on Houston and the surrounding area. Dozens of lives were lost in what FEMA has called “the worst disaster in Texas history.” With your help, we mobilized clean-up teams and provided for the physical needs of our neighbors in Houston. Thank you for helping us extend the love of Christ in the midst of this suffering.
