L.E.R.T. Volunteers Help Christ Lutheran in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, and Congregation Members Clean Up After Storm Damage
On Thursday, June 16, Sheboygan, Wisconsin, was one of the many towns that experienced tree and home damage due to high winds with storms that went through the state. Rev. Nathan Meador, South Wisconsin District Disaster Response Coordinator requested Lutheran Early Response Team (L.E.R.T.) assistance at Christ Lutheran Church and for a few congregation members that had storm damage.
The following LCC L.E.R.T. team members served this past Saturday:
St. Paul, Grafton, Wisconsin – Mark and Beverly Brueggemann, Stu Natale
Trinity, Lisle, Illinois – Ed Boerman
Pastor Chris Gugel from Christ Lutheran Church was very thankful for the L.E.R.T. chainsaw volunteers that cut and moved wood and brush from a large tree that was uprooted on the church grounds to the roadside for pick up. They also enjoyed a nice lunch with Pastor Gugel and his wife, who prepared the meal for them.
Afterward, the team helped cut and remove a large limb that was downed in a congregation member’s backyard totaling out his shed.
Tim was so appreciative as he did not have the capability to do this work himself due to his disability.
He thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with the team that shared the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ with him.
The LCC Disaster Response Ministry never charges those we serve. Please donate to the LCC Disaster Response Fund so that, when invited, we may continue to show the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need.
