A few weeks ago, Hurricane Florence devastated North Carolina. Lutheran Disaster Response is on-site in North Carolina and surrounding areas hit by Hurricane Florence. The Lutheran Church Charities “LERT” teams are your hands and hearts with the thousands whose lives have been devastated by the storm. Early contacts report several churches of our sister denomination the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod have been damaged and that many or most members in those congregations have sustained major damage to their properties. YOU CAN HELP! You can give toward the work of Lutheran Church Charities by marking donations placed in our church offering plates with “Florence Relief”, by dropping cash or checks into the container in the narthex, or by going to LutheranChurchCharities.org and giving electronically.
