*Beyonce, her daughter Blue Ivy, her mom Tina Knowles Lawson and her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Michelle Williams popped up at St. Johns Church in Bey’s Houston hometown today (Sept. 8) to assist and lift the spirits of Hurricane Harvey survivors.

Beyonce, joined by her mom, stood before the crowd to say a few words of encouragement.

“I just wanna say that I’m home,” she said. “This church is my home. I was maybe 9 or 10 years old the first time I sat there where my daughter is sitting. I sang my first solo here and I just wanna thank you for lifting my family up, for praying for me, and for being such an incredible example of what light and love is. This today is a celebration of survival. Ya’ll 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. I just wanna say I love you. I’ve been blessed so that I can bless other people and I ask of God to continue to do that for other people.”

Earlier in the day, Beyonce’s mom and Michelle Williams pitched in to help serve lunch to about 400 flood victims while sporting aprons with the logo of the singer’s philanthropic organization, BeyGOOD.

“Tina and Michelle are serving food! They’re greeting everyone, making them all feel special,” Houston resident Craig Zeno told “Entertainment Tonight,” adding that the pair are telling victims to “continue to be strong.”

“Houston is strong! We will rebuild and be even stronger,” Zeno recalls Knowles Lawson and Williams telling residents, before posing for photos with flood victims. Beyonce’s pastor, Rudy Rasmus, was also in attendance.
