Cypress TX congregation returns home after Harvey

A Category 4 hurricane in Texas, followed by flooding that brought raging water halfway up their front doors, didn’t wash out a small congregation 25 miles northwest of Houston for long. Christ United UCC in Cypress returned to their fellowship hall for worship on Sunday, to celebrate the amazing blessings that God is bringing them. “If you look past the water, you see God’s hands at work doing marvelous things in people’s hearts – wonderful,” Christ United Pastor the Rev. Jeffrey Willey told his congregation on Sept. 10. “Let’s celebrate that which we do have.” Click here for the UCC News story and video.
