The LCMS is encouraging each district to have a Disaster Response group. We are organizing this under the Local Mercy committee. This will be an effort and opportunity for the local congregations to show mercy in their communities and congregations. This is an opportunity for our congregations to make themselves visible in the community.
Each congregation would have two people involved with disaster preparedness. One person would be the liaison, somebody from the congregation who knows the congregation well and would know the people that may sustain disasters or need help. The other person would be a construction-type, handyman-type person who would understand working in repairs/construction. If you are interested in being involved or would like to recommend or nominate someone from your congregation, you may contact Kirk Rosin at 701-347-5279 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
