God’s work never stops. Churchwide office staff are still hard at work – from our homes. Hours and lines of communication remain the same.

U.S. Flooding

The situation

Periods of heavy rainfall in southeastern Texas have resulted in widespread flooding and that some residents in and around Houston report to be worse than what they remember during Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Neighborhoods, roads and farms are completely submerged.

Cleanup continues in Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, and other states affected by spring floods and severe storms over the summer months, where historic flood levels were recorded at 42 locations.

Our response:

Lutheran Disaster Response is responding to these emergencies through congregations, synods and our affiliates across Texas, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri.

What you can do:

Please pray for the communities that have been affected by or lie in the path of flooding. May God's healing presence give them peace and hope in their time of need. Pray that God will deliver comfort to those mourning the loss of loved ones and strength to those working diligently to care for affected communities.

Gifts to "U.S. flooding" will be used in full (100 percent) to assist those affected by flooding until the response is complete.
