If you are interested in helping with disaster relief in Houston, here are several ways you can help:

1. You can donate directly to First Baptist Disaster Relief effort¬†by making your check out to First Baptist Russellville and put “hurricane” or “Disaster Relief” in the memo line.

2. You can donate supplies (please see list below) – We will have collection areas set up on Sunday for folks who would like to drop off supplies or you can bring them to the church office (Monday – Friday, 8am-5pm).
