News from The Christian Science Church in Victoria TX

Here is a letter We received:

Good Afternoon,

Last weekend, the Victoria Church got about one foot of water in the sanctuary.  Our amazing congregation has made a lot of progress cleaning up.  We’ve been in contact with The Mother Church and Keith Wommack.

Please continue supporting us and the entire Houston area metaphysically.  There have been some wonderful healings in the past week.

If anyone would like to make a donation to our church, they can be mailed to

From the Glossary of Science and Health, “Rock. Spiritual Foundation; Truth.”  “…and upon this rock I will build my church” (Matt 16:18).

Thank you so much.

Sunday declared National Day of Prayer

President Trump and Texas Governor Abbott Have proclaimed Sunday as a National Day of Prayer See their statements below:

From President Trump:

President Trump has declared Sunday a “National Day of Prayer” in honor of Texans and others affected by Hurricane Harvey

Surrounded by leaders from the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, Trump signed a proclamation from the Oval Office on Friday inviting “all Americans to join us as we continue to pray for those who have lost family members or friends, and for those who are suffering in this time of crisis.”


From Governor Abbott

James A,

Throughout our history, Texans have been strengthened and lifted through prayer, and it is fitting that Texans join together in this time of crisis.

I proclaimed this Sunday, September 3rd a Day of Prayer in Texas to provide an opportunity for Texans of all faiths and religious backgrounds to come together and offer prayers for the safety of first responders, public safety officers, and military personnel, and for the healing of individuals, rebuilding of communities, and the restoration of the entire region struck by this disaster.

Throughout this disaster, we have seen the power of Texans helping Texans. We have remained strong throughout this ordeal, and this Day of Prayer will make us even stronger.

Prayer is a source of strength and guidance for many Texans of faith. In times like these we learn that our lives are not determined by the ways we’re challenged when tragedies occur, but by how we respond those challenges.

I’m proud to see how Texans have responded to this challenge—with neighbor helping neighbor by wading into flood waters or sorting through damage to help fellow Texans. As we begin this process of healing and rebuilding, I know this support will continue.

I would encourage you to let your faith community know about the proclamation. The First Lady and I invite you to join us this Sunday, along with your fellow Texans and those across this country and around the world, to seek God’s wisdom for ourselves and our leaders and ask for His merciful intervention and healing in this time of crisis.

May God keep you safe.


Greg Abbott
