As Texas experienced record-breaking low temperatures and sweeping power outages, churches and ministries across the state opened their doors to serve as warming shelters and provide food or supplies to those in need, the Christian Post reported.

On Sunday, the entire state of Texas was placed under a winter storm warning, with officials warning that people may die of hypothermia and carbon monoxide poisoning from improper use of generators, the Post noted. Travel conditions were extremely hazardous conditions on roads covered with snow and ice.

“We feed them, we serve them, we pray with them,” said Alex Fleming, with Life Reformed Church. “We’re loving on them, we’re really humanizing them, that’s a big difference that you see in a lot of other institutions that cattle prod people through versus rehumanize them and loving them.

“You’re so vital and so important to helping us impact people’s lives,” he said, calling on fellow Christians to step up and serve during the trying time. “If you could survive this inclement weather, then we may have a chance to revive and to restore a life.”

When churches and their members serve local communities in very practical ways, especially in emergencies, many people give praise to God for #ImpactChristians.
