As we wake this morning our church and community are facing an unprecedented natural disaster. Areas around the church are in a mandatory or voluntary evacuation zone due to the Brazos River flooding.
Several have asked about using the church building as a possible evacuation site. The church building is itself in a voluntary evacuation zone and under threat of flooding. There would be a very real possibility that the church loses electricity and water. While the third floor would stay dry, it would be without the most basic provisions needed for an extended stay.
Currently, if you need to leave your home, the best option is to head to designated Red Cross Shelters or the homes of family or friends who are outside the predicted flood zones.
These difficult days give us the opportunity to be the church. If your house is not in the flood zone, would you consider opening your doors to those who are? Take time today to check on your ABF members and friends from church to see if they are ok.
I am praying for you. Please pray for families affected by these rains. This includes my own family. Continue to pray for first responders who have now been working for days.
Church leadership will continue to evaluate the situation and keep you updated as things change. Should you need to contact a minister:
Chris Curran, Executive Pastor -
Scot Cameron, Worship & Arts Minister -
Davey Gibson, Young Adult Minister -
Amy Sims, Preschool/Children's Minister -
Until then, a word from Psalm 46:1-3, 7
1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
7 The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
Grace and peace,
