Keith Wommack of the Christian Science Committee on Publications for Texas will be giving talks in the Metro-plex

Our neighbors should know what Christian Science is able to provide them. How do we help them to know?  We do so by erasing misconceptions regarding Christian Science and the Church of Christ, Scientist.  This is what Committee on Publication work is all about.  Keith Wommack, the Christian Science Committee on Publication for Texas, will be giving short talks in the DFW area​ in October​.  The talks will touch on how each of us has a role in Committee on Publication work, and how our work strengthens the church and us as church members.  As well, there will be an update on our continuing response to Harvey – how we can help churches and individuals.  At the close of the talk, there will be time for questions and answers.

The talks will be:

Updates on Christian Science Churches in Houston Area

Here is what we know so far..

2 Christian Science churches in the Houston area have been damaged by the floods: Bellaire and 9th Church.

I have spoken to the clerk at 9th Church.  Yesterday they were able to get into the church and begin salvaging items.  Today they expect a crew to come and remove the drywall to prevent further damage to the structure.

The Christian Science church in Bellaire will need need new flooring and may have gotten damage to their organ and piano but are still sorting things out. Right now they are quickly removing items for cleaning.

No need to come to Houston at this time due to fuel issues, traffic and blocked roads.  We can address offering help by organizing and coordinating with other area Chrisitan Science churches in a few weeks. There is a great desire to reach out and help.

How can you help now?

Prayer is, of course, number 1. There are some very inspiring articles to be found by clicking on:

The Texas Committee on Publications, Keith Womack,  has asked that all donations be directed to the above locations.  In that way, donations can be directed with more focus to meeting those in need.

Here is a note from Keith:

“Human mentality, expressed in disease, sin, and death, in tempest and in flood, the divine Mind calms and limits with a word.” (My. 106:19-21). How wonderful it is to know that the word of God calms the storms and instructs “the proud wave, ‘Thus far, and no farther.’”
