The Nebraska District LCMS is congregations, leaders, and related organizations connected and growing in their mission of discipling the saved and proclaiming Christ to the lost.

How can I help with those who are in need or who have been displaced by flooding here in Nebraska? 

There are several ways you can help:

If you have been trained as a part of the Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT), you can help us by making sure that you are registered as a part of the new national database of LERT trained volunteers.  Register by clicking here and using the registration code of ‘9999.’

LERT will be making assessments next week of the damage and will be in contact as they mobilize teams. The Nebraska District office is collecting information to share with LCMS Disaster Response and LERT. We encourage congregations, schools, and daycare centers to share information about their needs or the needs of their communities through this form on our website.  If you need assistance with this form, you can call Kimberly Myers at 1-888-643-2961, extension 1009. Visit our disaster response page to learn more.

You can also help by donating funds that will be funneled through local churches into their communities where it is most in need.  To donate through our Synod’s disaster relief channel, you can make a gift to LCMS World Relief and Human Care through their disaster donation page.  If you prefer to work through our district office, you can click here to give a restricted gift through our secure payment website (eservicespayments) and choose the category Disaster Relief - NE Flooding
.

 

Congregations and schools may send funds for disaster relief to one of the following organizations as well:


You are welcome to use the following prayer during worship or to utilize your own resource if you choose:

We pray: Gracious Lord, Creator of the heavens and the earth, the sea and the sky, and all that lives and breathes within them: we thank you for all these good gifts and how they have benefited us in our lives.  Because of the curse that you so rightly leveled against us on account of sin, frustration and calamity befalls us. Be with us through these storms, help us to weather them while faithfully turning to You for all that we need. Raise up your people to respond with generosity, love, and support. Sustain those who have been displaced by storm or flood and give them hope in the reminder that though they suffer in this present time, their troubles are not worth comparing with the glory that will yet be revealed in us because of your Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.  In His name we pray, amen.
