No members of LCMS congregations died, and no LCMS churches were damaged, but almost 50 LCMS families lost their homes in the fires.
LCMS Disaster Response
The Rev. Ken Hennings, president of the LCMS Texas District, thanks those who have helped and invites additional volunteers.
As of Oct. 19, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s California-Nevada-Hawaii District reports several members have lost homes to California wildfires.
The LCMS encourages congregations to use the following church bulletin insert and flier to inform members how they can join relief efforts in Puerto Rico, California, and beyond.
Power remains out over much of the island and many roads are still blocked by debris.
Collaboration among LCMS Disaster Response, affected districts and essential partners continues to be strengthened by generosity shown across the Synod.
