While all eyes were on Hurricane Irma this weekend, Beyoncé visited her hometown in Houston to support survivors of Hurricane Harvey. The singer on Friday visited her home church,St. John’s United Methodist Church, with her mother, Tina Knowles, and oldest daughter, Blue Ivy, NBC News reports.  Earlier in the  day, Beyoncé, her mother, and Michelle Williams were spotted handing out food to Hurricane victims. They wore aprons emblazoned with the name of Beyoncé’s charity organization, “BEY GOOD.”

Knowles said the church was her home, the place where she sang her first solo, US Weekly reports. In a video posted by a fan on Twitter, Knowles says, “Y’all are my family. Houston is my home. I thank God that you’re safe, your children are safe. I think that really matters is your health and your children and your family.” Before Friday, Knowles expressed support on Twitter and she released a statement with the Houston Chroniclepledging to help the city as much as she could. She wrote, “I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”

On August 29, Knowles’ pastor, Rudy Rasmus, told ET that Knowles had given a “significant” gift that would be used to help “communities most affected.” Rasmus said, “She has, over the years, been very generous to our cause, and we continue to work together. She has been a huge benefactor to our efforts here in Houston, Texas.”
