Local churches host gospel musical benefiting Harvey victims


A group of faith leaders from across Lubbock hold a unity concert at the Agape Temple near 48th and Q to raise money and supplies for Harvey victims. The Help For Houston West Texas Community Benefit Musical featured choirs from around West Texas benefiting those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

Bishop William H. Watson with the Church of God in Christ said churches stay involved in their communities and do a lot of benevolence work. Pastor Deshun Avery with First Progressive Baptist Church said he couldn't just sit by and do nothing for the victims.

"We decided to do something where we can all show a sign of unity, come and sing together with all proceeds going to the greater Houston area," Avery said. "Many churches do quite a bit,we just don't really publicize it," Watson said. "So this is an effort to publicize what we do, how we do it, and be a blessing to those that are less fortunate." 

The churches are taking donations of all kinds and encourage support for other charitable organizations that work on the coast.
