Lutheran Church Charities (LCC) welcomes six new Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) certified members! On Saturday, September 28, LCC held a Basic LCMS LERT training for new and re-certifying team members at St. John Lutheran Church in Beecher, Illinois, led by Kathy O’Day, LCC Director of Disaster Response.
All attendees had to travel around flooded roads to participate, so it was very appropriate to learn about how to do disaster response.
The following churches and LERT teams were represented:
Alleluia - Naperville
Immanuel - Steger
St. John – Beecher
Zion - Beecher
St. John – Dillsboro
It is good to see how the disaster response ministry is continuing to grow with volunteers willing to share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ in service to those suffering and in need.
