The devastation from Hurricane Laura in the communities of Lake Charles, LA and SE Texas is overwhelming. By God’s grace, a very short distance prevented us at Sugar Creek from the same harrowing experience. Now is the time to help our neighbors. Sugar Creek is joining with other Houston area like-minded churches and ministries to form a collective response to Hurricane Laura. Our team dialogues daily with the collaborative partners and front-line agencies. Current conditions prohibit anyone but first-responders and self-supporting teams from entering the area. Below is Sugar Creek’s immediate disaster relief response:
