Lutheran Church Charities Welcomes Fifteen New LERT Certified Members & St. Paul’s as a New Northern Illinois District LERT Team
On Saturday, October 28, LCC held a Basic LCMS LERT training for new and recertifying team members at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Bourbonnais, Illinois, led by Deaconess Kathy O’Day, LCC Director of Disaster Response.
There were a total of sixteen in attendance from the following teams or churches in Illinois and Indiana:
Good Shepherd, Frankfort
Peace Lutheran, Beecher
Prince of Peace, Palatine

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.
