Many have asked, what are we to do as the church to help those affected by #HurricaneHarvey?

First of all, pray mightily for protection, refuge, relief from the storm, the emergency responders and for the hard work yet to be done putting lives, homes, businesses and infrastructures back together again.

Below is the link for how we can help as the church.

We can make donations to the Rio Texas Conference Disaster Fund, Advance # 2057 and/or to UMCOR, United Methodist Council on Relief fund, Advance #901670.

We will be collecting offerings at church on the next few Sundays for these funds. At this time they are requesting NO supplies or clothes be sent.

Our trained disaster response team was on the ground yesterday beginning to help those in need and to assess the needs for the days, weeks, months and years to come.

If you have been certified as an Emergency Relief Trained helper, you can register now to assist. If you would like to become certified, there will be training in San Antonio on Sept. 2nd from 8:30 - 4:30. Please follow the link below for further information.

Thanks and God bless.

#BrackenUMC #40DaysOfPrayer Exodus 20:8-11
Remember the sabbath day, and keep it holy. For six days you shall labour and do all your work. But the seventh day is a sabbath to the #Lord your #God; you shall not do any work—you, your son or your daughter, your male or female slave, your livestock, or the alien resident in your towns. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but rested the seventh day; therefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and consecrated it.

‪#‎BrackenUMC‬ ‪#‎40DaysOfPrayer‬ Matthew 5:13-16
Salt and Light
‘You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.

‘You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in ‪#‎heaven‬.
