The 10/16/2018 was a major disaster in the Burnet and Llano Counties. The response was a kairos moment for HLCN. In responding to the aftermath of the flood, churches in the area banded together in a coordinated way to respond to the short term physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of our neighbors. This was the beginning of what would become HLCN.
