Many of you are wanting to do something to help those affected by #HurricaneHarvey but you do not know what to do or you may not be able to safely leave your homes.
Here are some things you can do RIGHT NOW as we prepare to provide much needed stability to those affected:
• Continue praying for Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston, government officials, and first responders as they work around the clock to rescue stranded citizens and get them to a shelter.
• Let your friends and family know that TCWW is working to help in whatever way we can and will need their help as well.
• TCWW is more than a building, it is the people. Open your home to others who may have lost everything and need a place to stay. Meet the people where they are and SHOW them what being a follower of Jesus looks like.
• Start going through your clothes, towels, and bedding to get them ready to donate. Wash and box all items so that they are ready for use.
• Help first responders by feeding them and offering them a place to eat and get dry.
• TCWW will need lots of hands to help as we prepare to assist families. Be ready to give freely of your time and support once it is SAFE to do so. Start communicating with your ministry members about staffing support hours.
• Dig up those gift cards that you have not used and be ready to donate them to the cause. Walmart, Visa, MasterCard, Target, etc. These cards will be useful to families who will need to start over.
• Be ready to support the #HARVEY effort with contributions to TCWW, Red Cross, and the Greater Houston Community Foundation.
• If your employer is willing to donate resources: volunteers, food, finances, etc. please notify TCWW leadership. Start making a list of people to contact about helping us to help others.
Atria Senior Living
Friday, August 25th
It’s what we all feel instinctively – and science backs it up. A growing body of research shows that those who live in a caring, connected environment enjoy greater health and well-being than those who are isolated. At Atria, we are dedicated to creating vibrant communities where older adults realize healthier, happier, more meaningful lives – trading in loneliness for the company of neighbors, inactivity for movement, and boredom for purposeful engagement.
Houston Food Bank
Friday, August 4th & Saturday, August 12
The Houston Food Bank is America’s largest food bank in distribution to its network of 600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties.

#WeServe Blood Drive
February 26, 2017
The mission of Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is to partner with the community to save and sustain lives by providing a safe supply of blood, blood components, and related services.
The Blood Center must collect about 1,000 donations every day. That is why The Blood Center encourages individuals to Commit for Life, a partnership between the community and Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center that is focused on saving lives, today and in the future.
Every donation can help save as many as three lives.
Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center will be hosting a blood drive at all three campuses. Please click the link below to sign up:
Compassion’s one-to-one Child Sponsorship Program allows you to personally connect with a specific child in poverty and build a life-changing relationship. When you sponsor a child, you have the opportunity to influence that child during adolescence, one of the most pivotal developmental periods.
Our country of child sponsorship in 2017 is Guatemala. When Pas extended the opportunity for TCWW and Compassion International to partner for the purpose of global discipleship, he wanted to know CI’s greatest need. Compassion’s response was Guatemala, as there are over 2,000 children living in extreme poverty (i.e., living on less than $1.90 a day). Without hesitation, Pas agreed to focus on the country of Guatemala for the inaugural launch of TCWW’s Compassion Ministry. We are able to witness God’s divine synchronicity in this moment as we celebrate our 30th Church Anniversary. Guatemala was our first global missionary effort. By launching a global discipleship effort for Guatemala brings us back to our roots in global missions.
The purpose of #WeServe is to support our 30th Church Anniversary celebration by getting the congregation excited and connected and by being more visible in our communities both locally and globally. Click here for more information about the organizations #WeServe and to see available service dates.
