There are two Disciples churches in Bastrop county, The Christian Church of Bastrop and First Christian in Smithville. I have made a first attempt to contact Pastor Ben Hitzfeld in Bastrop and will let you all know when I hear from him. The fire is not threatening Smithville proper, nor the church. Two of our families that live north of town have been evacuated and one is staying with a church family member.
Please keep our community, and especially our firefighters in your prayers.
