“For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38-39
HURRICANE HARVEY: RELIEF AND SERVE
For now, the city of Houston, congregations and many recovery agencies are urging volunteers to wait until the storm has been assessed by first responders. Once conditions are safe and the most immediate needs are determined, volunteers will be contacted and given an assignment. Just within our Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) of the Texas District we know that there are over 650 homes that are flooded, we have over 4 homes within our Oikos and you know so many others. Oikos is preparing herself to work in partnership with other congregations and organizations. The response is taking place next will be the recovery and repair of which FEMA indicates will take years.
Until we hear exactly where repair of homes is needed Oikos has prepared a Registration Form for you to sign up. We will be given numerous opportunities to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus. Please take five minutes to complete this pre-registration.
