Central Texas Floods

Blessing Our Neighbors

The Central Texas rains and resulting floods created significant damage to many homes and lives in the Highlands Lakes Region. Hundreds of families have been impacted by the flooding, including some from our church family.

Hill Country Bible Church is taking the following immediate steps to assist in the relief efforts and asks for your prayerful consideration to get involved.

Pray

Please pray for those families whose lives have been impacted and for the relief teams already in the field providing assistance.

Go on Relief Trips

We are working with a coalition of churches (including our Lake Shores Church plant) in the Highland Lakes Region. There is a need for mud out teams to help at homes in Kingsland, Marble Falls, Lake Travis and the surrounding areas. Hill Country will be sending coordinated Relief Teams on November 9 & 10.

If you can contribute any of the needed supplies (see below) to the unit on which you will be placed, it would be helpful. Please mark your tools with your name. Rubber boots and gloves are required for trips; masks will be provided as needed. If you have additional questions after reading the FAQ, email us at disasterrelief@hcbc.com.
