Hurricane Disaster Relief
Three Ways to Give...

We invite you to stand by our neighbors during this time. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those left homeless or otherwise affected by this disaster for years to come. Here are three different organizations with different focuses, to help our friends:

Focusing on the homeless needs in downtown Houston

In Conroe, TX, is currently set up as a shelter and needs support to help run it.
Christopher Lake, Senior Pastor, is Peace's Pastor Doug's former youth pastor.

Focusing on long-term recovery efforts for both Harvey and Irma.

Anyone (not just Thrivent members) can make a personal donation to hurricane victims. When you do, Thrivent will double the impact - up to $3 million.
One of the organizations listed to receive matching dollars is ELCA Lutheran Disaster Response. (Thrivent Financial will also pay the processing fees)

Last Sunday we welcomed Maya Fond-Rose, from the Haitian Timoun Foundation (HTF) who highlighted Peace's 2017-18 main financial focus: Chemen Lavi Miyò (CLM), or "Pathway to a Better Life", in Haitian Creole. During the service, Maya was presented with a check for $25,000; a gift from the estate of long-time Peace member Paul Kiser, who passed away last year. In addition, the Peace Community heard the call, donating $5,286.48 to the special offering. THANK YOU for Loving...Our Haitian Neighbors.
