Update on June 22nd tornadoes in Coal City, IL Print E-mail
storms LCC’s Disaster Response Director, Ken Cupples, has been on the scene since the tornadoes touched down. He has met with all the key players that are involved with the city and their disaster response efforts. He has walked the streets in the affected areas and talked with homeowners about any needs they may have.

Here is where we are:

Coal City was hit with a similar situation 2 years ago. As a result they have in place a very thorough DR plan.

The city has asked United Way to coordinate all volunteers coming into the city. Since there is no LCMS church in town, the closest LCMS church is 10 miles away, and since LCC has not received any requests from families for assistance for cleanup at this point, it was decided that the best way for us to respond is by working through the great organization they already have in place.

storms IF you want to help, here is what you can do:

At 8 am on Friday and/or Saturday go to the Diamond Banquet Hall in Braidwood, Illinois 60416 (on Hwy 113). Sign in there to volunteer. Workers and chainsaw people are needed.

If you have any questions you can contact LCC DR Director Ken Cupples at 815-791-1646 (cell).

If there happens to be too many volunteers and not enough work – another option would be to volunteer either Friday or Saturday at Lutheran Church Charities’ new Location where we just moved. We are now located at 3020 Milwaukee Ave, Northbrook IL (St. John Church in the Woods) Our location is in the middle of the forest preserve and we have plenty of outside chainsaw and landscaping that needs to be done. If you would like to do this, please contact Joel Moritz at 847-287-1801 (cell) or Phil Bandy at 847-363-2162 (cell).

Please keep everyone in Coal City and the surrounding area in your prayers.

Peace and Healing in Christ Jesus,
The LCC Disaster Coordination Team

Before and After
This week, over 300 youth and adult leaders from LCMS churches around the country come to Chicago for a week of service and worship. It is a great opportunity for the youth to be the hands of feet of Jesus for those in need. This year, LCC was blessed to have a group of 9 teenagers and 4 adult leaders work on the exterior property at LCC's new headquarters at St John Lutheran Church in Northbrook, Illinois. What a wonderful gift we received, evident in the before and after pictures below, just a few examples of the many improvements to the property.

Veterans Traveling Wall On Thursday, June 4th and Saturday, June 6th the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry, represented by Kare-9 Britta and Veterans Dale and Chuck, Kare-9 Butch and Veterans Keith and Ward, Kare-9 Blitz and Veteran Bob, Kare-9 Flex and Veteran Fred, Kare-9 Brandi and Veteran Marvin, and Kare-9 Brutus and Veteran Jim, attended ceremonies at Cabela's in Hoffman Estates featuring The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Traveling Wall. Known as "The Wall that Heals", this 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC honors the more than 3 million Americans who served in the Armed Forces during the Vietnam War and bears the names of the more than 58,000 who died throughout its duration.

The Kare-9's brought compassion and mercy to the many veterans and their families attending the display. Many smiles, hugs and gestures of peace were shared by all.

Help Haiti children go to school this year. Give Hope and a Future in an otherwise Hopeless situation. Print E-mail
Kids A year ago Tim Hetzner spent a night in a tent city in Port-au-Prince, Haiti with a family of 7 children. After an LCC appeal generous donors stepped forward to sponsor these and other children living in the tent city to go to schools, both Christian schools and a special school for the sponsored children with special needs. Please consider sponsoring a child's education for the upcoming school year. Christ working through you to "defend the cause of the poor of the people, give deliverance to the children of the needy" (Psalm 72:4)

Public and private education in Haiti costs money - there is NO free education. Our Lutheran schools also charge but are less expensive than the public schools. For $35 a month a child can go to school, receive a daily meal and a uniform. $300 for a year! Please consider sponsoring a child that they may have hope for their future and learn the wonders of the Lord! Tell to the children the glorious deeds of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. (Psalm 78:4)
