There are five Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) churches located in the panhandle that were hit by Hurricane Michael; 3 have been totally destroyed and the other 2 have sustained considerable damage. Pastor Robert Lydick from Redemption Lutheran in Panama City shares that the damage to the church is so great that it is a total loss. Tim talks to Pastor Randal Ehrichs from Good Shepherd in Callaway about the devastation in their community.

LCC has given financial assistance to all three pastors to help them, their members and the community who have the greatest need. The damage sustained in Mexico City, Florida, community is unimaginable - devastation as far as you can see.
Currently, the greatest need is financial assistance to help families with the very basic need of food and lodging.
As needs continue to be assessed, we will be sending a special update later this week on how you can help this devastated and hurting community!
LCC LERT teams have been asked by the LCMS to be on standby to deploy to provide chainsaw and debris removal assistance.
Please pray for the churches, individuals, and families affected by Hurricane Michael, as well as all first responders and volunteers who tirelessly help during this long-term recovery effort. Your generous donations will help us to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
