Hurricane Florence Relief Efforts
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 in the Jacksonville area over the past months. Save the dates for a Lutheran Work Week in Jacksonville 9/16-20 (day trips or multiple days; free lodging for those working multiple days). If you are able to serve, please contact Pastor Wayne ( ) or DCE Steve McCarthy ( ).
