September Benevolence – Hurricane Harvey Relief
Our church council, following the encouragement of ABCUSA’s General Secretary, has agreed to shift our special mission focus for September to Hurricane relief through One Great Hour of Sharing. As the situation unfolds, and long-term rebuilding efforts get under way, we’ll begin exploring how we partner with American Baptist Home Mission Societies to be part of the effort. Thank you all for your support. I know Central will go above and beyond, as we always do.
