When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, Moreland Christian Church saw a need and responded by providing hands-on assistance. They reached out to Christ Covenant Church in Beaumont, Texas. Because of Moreland’s willingness to get involved, Men for Christ also responded and donated $5,000 from the Emergency Fund. Following is a letter from their lead minister, Chris Beard.

Dear Brothers in Christ
I will never forget the last days of August 2017. As the rains continued to fall from Hurricane Harvey, it became clear that the devastation would be both widespread and personal. As the waters receded, Christ Covenant Church found ourselves in the midst of a new reality of a community that needed rebuilding, including our own building and the homes of many of our own church family.

From the beginning of the recovery process, Christ Covenant Church declared that our goal was not just to survive this disaster, but as God’s people it was time to thrive. Our prayer was that during our own rebuilding processes, we would be able to be good news to a community that desperately needed it. YOU have been a wonderful answer to that prayer.
Through the love and generosity of you and others like you, Christ Covenant Church has been able to move forward in our own rebuilding process. The 20 inches of flood water our building sustained has necessitated extensive rebuilding. Walls below the 4-foot mark required demolition and rebuilding throughout the building, the bathroom and kitchen need complete renovation, our stage must be rebuilt, new floors and doors are needed, and almost all our furniture and fixtures must be replaced. This reality is daunting for a small congregation with limited resources, but we praise God that He has provided for us in mighty ways due to the generosity of people like you. To be good stewards of what God has blessed us with, we decided to do most of the rebuilding work ourselves, and we are slowly but surely making progress.

But if Christ Covenant was to truly thrive in this disaster, we had to do more than just rebuild our building; we needed to shine the light of Jesus in the darkness of this disaster. With your help and others like you, we’ve been able to actively minister to people in need in tangible ways. As soon as we were able to return to our building, we began handing out supplies, food, and clothing to those who were grappling with overwhelming loss. We have been able to provide financial assistance to many in the name of Jesus, and in partnership with other generous Christ-followers we’ve been able to minister in unique ways, including distributing hundreds of meals to those working on flood clean-up and providing and building storage sheds for families whose homes were destroyed.

Our work is not done. It will be many months before things are back to “normal”. It will be even longer before our people and community have fully recovered. So please continue to pray for us. Pray that we will be efficient in our rebuilding and that we will be able to minister to our community in such a way that we are able to meet both physical and spiritual needs. Pray we bring glory to our great God! Thank you for being a blessing. (Chris Beard, Lead Minister)


When we started Church of the Crossroads, we knew God was up to something and that there must be a need in Mt. Washington. We were right in thinking that but had no idea just how quickly God would work and how great the need would be. As I write this, Church of the Crossroads is 17 weeks old and here’s where God has us at this point:
Attendance: We have transitioned from the school cafeteria into the gymnasium because of the lack of space. We’ve outgrown the cafeteria. Christmas Eve was our first service in the gymnasium and we had 388 in attendance. That was an amazing day! But we also know it was a unique holiday service. After the holidays and special services, we opened up 2018 with 291 on January 7. This is about 40 more in attendance that we normally have on a regular Sunday.
Baptisms: We had one baptism in December bringing our total to 9 baptisms since launch.
New Initiatives: We had 125 people sign up to be in small groups that meet in homes every week across the Mt. Washington area. On the eve of January 7, we launched 11 new small groups. The leader of each group is trained and committed to helping each person in the group to grow as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Along with that, each group is intentionally committed to love and serve our city and our neighbors regularly. I can’t tell you just how exciting this work has been to this point. Every week God gives us more reason to brag on Him and give Him glory. There’s no way, by our own power, that we could have manufactured what is transpiring at Church of the Crossroads. It is obvious, so obvious, that this is His Church and He is the One in charge of it all. Thank you for your prayers and your support! May God bless every man and every congregation represented by MFC because of your leap of faith to plant Church of the Crossroads. –John Parkey
