Westminster UMC Harvey Restoration
Matthew 25:37-40 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ 40 And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
Join us in helping our family to rebuild Houston after Hurricane Harvey. Westminster has joined forces with the Restoration Team to continue the rebuilding efforts. We will be installing insulation and dry wall but don’t worry if you are a novice, our team leader from the Restoration Team will train us. We will send you specifics on the location and how-tos after you sign up.
A second opportunity to serve those affected by Hurricane Harvey is to join the Outreach/Canvassing team. Because the communities in West Houston have a higher per capita income, they, for the most part, have not received any aid and relief. We are tasked to go from house to house and speak with the homeowner about their current status and what help they might need. It is an amazing experience to get to meet them, hear their story, pray with them and assure them that they have not been forgotten. We report their needs to the Restoration Team so they can be plugged into the next round of restoration. Each group will receive training at the beginning of the day. Just wear comfortable clothing and shoes and you will get your steps in!
