Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief
Hurricane Harvey has devastated a huge stretch of the Texas Gulf coast. Eighteen (18) counties have been declared disaster areas. It will take years to restore the damage. The Texas District of the LCMS is on the front lines assessing and assisting those in need.
They are asking for help in two ways: 1) Pray. They need the fervent prayers of God’s people. Pray for wisdom, safety and courage. Pray that Jesus be seen in the response of God’s people. 2) Financial resources. As assessments are being made, and greatest needs are being determined, financial assistance will allow the district to resource people whose property has been damaged as well as provide supplies for future volunteers who will come to clean-up or even re-build homes, schools and churches.
To help financially you can make a donation to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Texas District. They have pledged that 100% of the funds collected will be applied to those in need. As additional needs are identified in the future we will bring them before the congregation.
