Flood Relief Opportunities

Central Texas Flood Relief Efforts

Hill Country Bible Church Leander is partnering with HCBC Austin and Austin Disaster Relief Network to take the following immediate steps to assist in the relief efforts and asks for your prayerful consideration to plug in:

  1. Pray:

    Begin praying for those families impacted and the relief teams already in the field providing assistance.

  2. Give Financially:

    Hill Country has opened our Central Texas Flood Relief fund, and financial donations can be designated to help support our efforts: https://www.hcbc.com/give

  3. Mobilize Physically:

    We are working with a coalition of churches (including our Lake Shores Church plant) in Marble Falls. They have started mobilizing mud-out teams and will be continuing those efforts going forward. Hill Country will be sending coordinated Relief Teams on October 26 & 27, and November 2 & 3, with further dates TBD.

    • 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.
