Disaster Response Conference
Have you ever volunteered in response to a disaster? Are you interested in getting involved in disaster response ministry? Looking for practical training and instruction?
All Hope members and friends are invited to sign up for a Disaster Response Conference & Training, sponsored by the Southeastern District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Join us January 23-24, 2020 for two exciting days (and an optional third half-day) of practical training sessions, reports from the field, enjoyable fellowship, inspiring first-hand ministry stories, and information on upcoming service opportunities.
The conference will be held at Crown Reef Resort Waterpark 7 Conference Center in Myrtle Beach, SC. For further information and to register, click here.
Disaster Response in NC
Thousands of homes were flooded in our state, during and after Hurricane Florence last fall. Many families are still struggling to get back to their homes, and to keep their hopes alive. Volunteers from our congregation, along with other regional Lutherans, have helped rebuild homes over the past months. This important work continues in November. You’re welcome to join in on November 23, the next work date. If interested, or have questions, please contact Pastor Wayne at or DCE Steve McCarthy at
