Church Family & Community:

We are temporarily amending our office hours due to the approaching Hurricane Laura. Please note the following changes for this week:

Wednesday- open as-needed-only, please call ahead to schedule an appointment. 936-327-5624

Thursday/Friday- Closed.


*We are planning for corporate worship on Sunday, August 30, 9:30am, Lord willing. Watch for updates on our Facebook page (facebook.com/cbclivingston) and here on our website.


Please pray with us for the protection of all in the path of the storm and for our many linemen and First Responders.


Please see the following update from the Polk County Center of Hope:

“While there are still many unknowns with the pending storm, the Center of Hope wants you to know that we are implementing our disaster response plans to allow us to: 1) accept your donations (food, supplies, dollars); 2) distribute collected food/materials to survivors/areas in need; and 3) organize volunteers to include teams to assist with mucking of homes if needed (more info on this below).


HOT! IMMEDIATE REQUEST FOR THE COMMUNITY:
Muck teams “all hands on deck!” Center of Hope and Livingston Habitat for Humanity will be organizing muck teams to respond to the needs of survivors. We need churches and private organizations that have the ability/desire to form muck teams to do so now in advance of the storm. At a later time we will publish guidance for teams on where to report, what to bring, etc. Per County, individuals will NOT be permitted into affected areas without clearance/passes and teams must be coordinated through the Center of Hope to gain vehicle passes allowing area access. So it is critical that volunteer response teams coordinate through the Center of Hope. We will be publishing team meeting times, conducting safety/orientation briefings, and dispatching volunteer muck teams at daily morning team rallies at Center of Hope. More information will follow on times, equipment needs, etc. For now, the request is FORM YOUR TEAMS NOW and be prepared to report when needed.

If you need more information on Center of Hope services or have questions on muck/volunteering, call Center of Hope at 936-327-7634.”

Please contact us via FB Messenger or our website with any questions. Know that we are praying for each of you; may God be glorified during this difficult time!
