As we all know Hurricane Harvey struck Texas and the Gulf Coast area with devastating force. The efforts and generosity of many will be needed to help those effected by this disaster recover. Below is information provided by Lutheran Disaster Response, an agency of the ELCA that “brings God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by disasters in the United States and around the world. When the dust settles and the headlines change, we stay to provide ongoing assistance to those in need.” If you would like to contribute to the Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts please follow the links below or give a check on Sunday morning with Hurricane Harvey written on the memo line and St. Peter’s will send a check of all combined contributions to Lutheran Disaster Response and, as always, please keep all those hit by the storm in your prayers.
Hurricane Harvey Relief
Please stand by our neighbors as we begin the long road to recovering from Hurricane Harvey, one of the most catastrophic storms to hit the country in more than a decade.
Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliate is actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts. Together, we have a strong history of working with disasters in the Gulf Coast area. Recovery efforts are expected to take years, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected through every phase of this disaster.
We invite you to stand by our neighbors on the Gulf Coast during this time. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those left homeless or otherwise affected by this disaster for years to come.
Gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response, designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” will be used entirely (100 percent) for this disaster until the response is complete. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support. Give today to support the needs in this response and others like it.
What you can do:
Please pray for the people who have been affected and are in the path of Hurricane Harvey. May God’s healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need.
Gifts to “US Hurricane Relief” will be used to assist those affected by the hurricane until the response is complete.
