Last fall the City of Baytown presented a recognition award to the Baytown United Seventh-day Adventist Church for serving as one of the distribution centers in Baytown in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Mayor Stephen DonCarlos presented the award at a City Council Chamber Meeting. Agnes Mapp serves as the Community Service Director for the Baytown church and received the award on behalf of the church. More than 5,000 homes were impacted and over 4,000 rescues were carried out in Baytown, Texas. The Baytown church received many trucks of goods on a weekly basis after Hurricane Harvey struck the area. Numerous volunteers from our church and community served with helping hands during the recovery efforts.
