Disaster Relief

1) Pray

In moments of great trial and need, God’s grace is greater and promises to meet our every need. Pray for protection from wind, storm surges, floods and their effects. Pray for the safety of residents, many of whom evacuated and will come back to find everything they owned lost. Pray for the first responders – for their safety and families – whose job it is to run toward danger. Pray for wise decisions by local government. Pray for the churches, that in the aftermath, they would come together as one to seek the good of their cities. Pray that God will replace all anxiety with the peace that surpasses all understanding.

2) Give

Paul tells the Corinthians, “I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.” You can give directly to MNA, who will make sure each and every dollar that you give is used to help those directly affected by the storm. You can give to their relief fund here.

3) Go

If you’re interested in volunteering directly through and with MNA, click here to register as a volunteer and/or let us know you are interested in going.

We’d also like to mention that as we pass the anniversary of Hurricane Harvey’s arrival and hear of new storms hitting our coasts, many of us might experience some of the same feelings we had a year ago following the storm and its aftermath. Harvey left many of us feeling powerless, anxious, overwhelmed and hopeless.

If this storm is bringing up psychological trauma, please contact our Counseling Center. You can contact them at 713-400-6715 or

Finally, if you are still recovering from Harvey and are in need of support, please contact our Diaconate. They are here to provide tangible help to members and regular attenders in times of need. To speak with a deacon, e-mail
