Give Financially

We are planning and preparing to serve Houston – not just for today or this weekend but for many months to come, so we have started a fund to be 100% used on Harvey Relief in Houston. Give online and select the "Flood Help" fund here: CEPC Harvey Relief in Houston

Please direct all of your out of town family, friends and churches who want to know where to make their financial donations to this fund so that we can quickly and easily use it to do all that we need to help CEPC and our neighbors recover.


Supplies Needed

We will need supplies to help clean and repair homes – not just for today or this weekend but for many months to come, so we have made a list of suggested supplies CEPC will accept as donations:

  • sheetrock knives
  • chalk line is handy for marking sheet rock level to cut. (2ft above highest watermark)

  • fans
  • packing boxes and tape for packing up dry items to be stored during renovations
