True Colors: Singing child comforts church members in Dickinson

DICKINSON, TEXAS - Tears were flowing Sunday at the First Baptist Church in Dickinson.

Most members of the small congregation are elderly and 80-percent of them lost their homes and didn’t have flood insurance.

The church itself was also badly damaged but that didn’t stop them from holding services.

One of the most moving moments of the service came when a Clear Lake ISD sixth-grader named Eleanor sang “True Colors" to the congregation. 

On Monday, more than a hundred volunteers began demolishing the church so that the rebuilding process can  begin. 

The same volunteers will assist senior members and other homeowners in need. The church is starting an Adopt a Senior program.
