Harvey Flood Relief – St. Luke’s continues to serve.

We weren’t the first in, but we will be the last out. – Dr. Tom Pace

These words from Dr. Pace inspire us to live out our faith by serving our Houston friends impacted by Hurricane Harvey. After 6 months, this commitment
to walk alongside our neighbors and to support our community speaks hope and love into the hearts of those who continue to suffer as they discern a way
forward.

Through a collaborative effort known as The Restoration Team, St. Luke’s along with Chapelwood UMC, Westbury UMC, and St. Paul’s UMC, received grant funding from Houston Harvey Relief Fund, managed by Greater Houston Community Foundation, to help with rebuild efforts. The Restoration Team is hosting groups from around the country as they travel to Houston and help with the rebuilding effort.

Alongside this effort, St. Luke’s is having monthly workdays where we will work in homes affected by Harvey to install drywall and insulation. We would love your help.
