Hurricane Harvey Relief
Last Fall, Hurricane Harvey left in its wake great destruction. The city of Houston and surrounding areas are still picking up the pieces and rebuilding their city. PCPC is committed to extending the transforming presence of the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ to this beloved community by supporting them in the rebuilding effort.
We have multiple ways to serve our brothers and sisters in need.
Short-Term Extend Mission Trip to Houston
For the foreseeable future, we will be sending teams of people from PCPC to Houston to help with rebuilding efforts.
Schedule: Teams will depart Dallas from PCPC on Thursday at 5:30 pm. All day Friday and half of Saturday will be spent with Sheds of Hope putting up recently made sheds as well as removing debris from homes. Then the team will depart from South Texas/Houston Saturday afternoon by 1:00 pm and will be returning to Dallas by 6:00 pm.
Accommodations: We will be staying in a mobile bunkhouse (“Base Camp”) on-property at Christ the King Presbyterian Church. A shower trailer is stationed there as well, and there are ample places for meals surrounding the Base Camp.
