Storm Recovery and Relief
LCMS Relief Disaster Response Teams are starting to arrive in Houston. MLC&S will need to know what the needs are. If you have flooded, please respond to this email or email Wayne directly to let us know your status. Please include your location and contact information.
For those who would like to contribute, you may send a check to MLC with "Relief" on the memo line or click here for our PayPal Relief link and we will see to it that it is spent on the needs of your fellow members (and any remainder would be forwarded to LCMS Disaster Response) or you may contribute to LCMS Disaster Response directly.
From the Pastor
God is Still God. Harvey is Not
Christians look so positively on the trial of the flooding that brings such devastation into people's lives with the loss of property, the ruin of keepsakes, and the destruction of autos. But their hearts are not set on the things of this world, but on Christ, who is the true treasure; a treasure that cannot be taken from us by the world's disasters. Nothing can separate us from that love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Especially not Harvey. God is still God. Harvey is not. God is still the God who saves, even through water.
