Emergency Response Committee

The Emergency Response Committee assists CCPC in providing for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of its members and friends in case of a local or regional emergency situation.  We believe an effective communication system is the key in any emergency. Our volunteers are on nine different teams, such as the Communication Team. Our mission is to serve where possible, making good use of our resources. In event of a community crisis, we review our ability to serve. ERC is on-going and meets quarterly to review the church plans for addressing immediate needs and for long-range planning.

God our Shelter, be a strong presence in the lives of neighbors who, having survived the winds and rains of Harvey, now face grief, uncertainty and weary days.  May our generosity in prayer and in tangible signs of support overflow more than floodwaters, to sustain your work of healing and rebuilding and bring comfort and strength to those who suffer.  AMEN.
