Waco Disaster Relief Network
There is a Waco Disaster Relief Network that was just formed. It is made of a group of churches who want to support families in West (and other future cases). Several families have already asked for help and filled out forms. Now the network is focusing on training church members to meet the need. The website for WDRN
will have more information.

The Body of Believers
A glimpse of how God is at work in the Waco area.
In light of the horrible disaster in West, TX, it has been beautiful to see the body of Christ pull together to offer support. It is truly humbling and wonderful to watch God’s love shine through so many people.

The church family of FBC West did not suffer any fatalities, but many were injured and have damaged homes, including the pastor and associate pastors’ homes. The church is pulling together magnificently.
The time for the church body to offer help has started. People can donate funds for recovery efforts and can place their names to a list to offer physical services (please call first and do not just go).
Specific ways to help:
- Donate HEB, Lowe’s, Home Depot and Walmart gift cards for FBC West to distribute.
- Donate funds to FBC West to support the town’s recovery. Donate through PayPal at the link below.
- Donate men and women’s work gloves, contractor (heavy-duty) garbage bags and hand tools.
- Donate your time to volunteer. Call FBC West at 254-826-5165 or sign up through the BGCT.
