MOM Mission Statement


Grateful for the greatest gift given to us

through Jesus' death and resurrection,

MOM is an opportunity for us to respond each month

to give to our neighbors near-by and far-away


The November Mission Of The Month Is LCMS Disaster Response

“We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19) – Helping the hurting amid disaster.


Disaster Response is one of the LCMS’ ongoing mercy works and ministries. Their efforts, in our country and abroad, are well organized, efficient and faithful to the Word. The immediate need is obvious in the southeastern United States but their work goes on -wherever the need is greatest - even long after Hurricane Michael has receded into an unpleasant memory.

 

Hurricane Michael – just the most recent in a string of national and international natural disasters.


Imagine that overnight your home was swept away or destroyed by flood waters. Homeless and heartbroken you learn that your church and other community anchor points are gone as well. This is the reality for many. Hurricane Michael struck the Florida Panhandle and left homes, business and churches damaged and destroyed. LCMS World Relief and Human Care Disaster Response are walking alongside the LCMS Southern District to bring aid and support to people and communities impacted by this storm and other disasters.

 

Volunteers, including Lutheran Early Response Teams (LERT), are already helping the people in Florida, with more on the way. As with all such situations, the needs and the response will continue for months ahead. “Needs” and “assistance” cost money and require prayers. What an opportunity for us to show the love of Christ and assist as homes, communities, churches and lives are rebuilt!  

 

Thrivent Financial has offered to match up to $1 million in donations made to hurricane relief at thrivent.com through year’s end. We will submit the congregation’s donations through Thrivent to double our impact! Thank you for considering this timely and crucial Mission of the Month request!!
