On Saturday, November 18, LCC held a Basic LERT training for new and recertifying team members at Concordia University Chicago in River Forest, Illinois, led by Kathy O’Day, Director of Disaster Response. There was a total of 16 in attendance from the following churches and LERT teams:
Concordia University Chicago – River Forest, Illinois
Prince of Peace – Palatine, Illinois
St. John – Wheaton, Illinois
Good Shepherd – Rock Falls, Illinois

We are excited 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.
