Mission of the Month

LCMS Disaster Response

The MOM for September is LCMS - Disaster Response. “We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19). The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Disaster Response ministry responds to immediate and long- term needs following natural and man-made disasters.

Working through LCMS districts and congregations as well as with international Lutheran churches and other partners, LCMS Disaster Response builds capacity of the church’s partners to respond to needs with Christian care. The ministry reaches out to LCMS congregations and their communities with services that include on-site assessment, emergency relief and development grants, pastoral care for LCMS church workers and members, and other resources.

Current examples of places where these funds would be used would be communities impacted by the wildfires, windstorms and
hurricanes. If you would like to contribute you can put a gift in the basket at the back of the sanctuary, drop a gift off in the church office or put it in the mail.
