Emergency Food Collection for Houston

When we see the pictures and videos of the damaging floods caused by Hurricane Harvey, we are prone think of the homes and businesses lost and how we can help clean up after the water is cleared, but there is an immediate need the people of Houston need met. They are starving and need our help. 

Connection Point Church is holding a one-day emergency food collection tomorrow, Wednesday, August 30, from 7:00am-8:30pm at the Raytown Campus inside the main entrance under the steeple. A member of the Connection Point family will deliver the supplies to a shelter in her community when she returns home to Houston on Thursday.
