Our hearts break for our Texas neighbors down South and along the Gulf Coast. We also share our sympathy and concern for others affected by Hurricanes Irma, Jose, and now Maria. The PMLC Church Council is making an emergency gift of $3,000 from undesignated benevolence, and you can help grow that gift to help our neighbors in need. The gift will be split between Lutheran Disaster Response (responding to all emergencies) and the Gulf Coast Synod of the ELCA led by Bishop Mike Rinehart. They will use the funds to help rebuild congregations and communities in great need.
UPDATE: As of 10/2, you have given $27,500 to help our neighbors. God is good! We thank you for being a blessing to others!

The recovery effort will take days to assess and many weeks and months to enact. As needs are expressed, we will organize a group to help with the recovery efforts. Our prayers continue for all affected by this catastrophic storm.
