In an event of a local disaster we, as a church, respond to the needs.
Below are ways we respond to a disaster.
If you're still struggling from Hurricane Harvey in any way,
please visit Senator John Cornyn's Website for aid.
Prayers are powerful. Pray for those affected and everyone working around the city who are meeting the needs.
Volunteering is also a great way to serve those who have been impacted during a disaster. We will update a list of ways to serve during our response to a disaster.
Financial donations can be made in the following ways:
Gift cards from grocery stores, Wal-Mart or Target.

Medical Apartment Ministry
First Methodist Houston leases seven apartments in the Brompton Court Complex. These apartments are rented to out-of-towners whose loved ones are being treated in the Houston Medical Center. The mission was born out of the love for many families who brought their loved ones to be treated for cancer, but were unable to afford housing.
The Brompton Court Complex is a gated community approximately two miles from the Houston Medical Center. The complex has five swimming pools and an exercise room available for the tenants. There is a shuttle that goes to the Medical Center every hour. Each apartment is fully furnished, complete with linens and cookware.
To apply for one of these apartments, contact the Church Apartment Ministry office at 713-524-2640 or apply online at churchapartmentministry.org.
The Home Repair Ministry assists those identified as economically disadvantaged by our partner ministries, as well as our congregation’s needs for home repairs. In order to work with more focus and excellence, we have decided to accept home repairs for members only, and establish quarterly projects for greater home repair needs. Each client must own their own home, and demonstrate the need for financial assistance. Applicants are reviewed according to team’s skills and budget availability.
