Loving Houston is almost upon us!

Loving Houston is less than a month away and momentum continues to build as churches and individuals volunteer to serve daily.

To date over 30 churches and ministires, representing hundreds and hundreds of volunteers, will spread across our city demonstrating the love of Christ through acts of kindness -- repairing roofs, building wheelchair access ramps, refurbishing homes and schools, installing windows, replacing siding, cleaning parks and cemeteries … the list goes on and on.  To read Reagan O'Hare's informative story on scope of Loving Houston, click here

Churches of all sizes are responding.  Some of our larger churches--like Sagemont, Champion Forest and Church Without Walls--are sending hundreds of volunteers.  Our smaller churches can't marshall hundreds of volunteers and do lots of projects, but they are doing things in a big way nonetheless.  Memorial Drive Baptist Church, for example, will working with a children's academy to do general clean up, provide mulch and gravel for the playground, and upgrade the academy's computers and playground equipment.  Sometimes churches are partnering to work on projects.  Three churches--Woodridge, Kingwood First, and Humble Area's First--are working together on several projects in the Denver Harbor area.
