Hurricane Harvey has been really tough for all Houstonians. Our hearts are heavy with the news that some of our CBC family and friends have been impacted by this storm. We are praying for God to comfort and provide for those who have been flooded. We are praying for those who live in the areas that have been flooded to be prepared physically, mentally, and spiritually. May our mighty God, who is sovereign over this storm and all of its havoc, bring many to know Him through this hardship. As your family in the Lord, we want to journey through this storm with you and your loved ones.
