"But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with (Jesus) Christ even when we were dead in
transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved."
(Ephesians 2:4-5)

Donations Needed for Flood Victims

The recent flooding in Louisiana has left thousands of people homeless and has also contributed to a number of injuries and deaths. We as a church now have the opportunity to help out one family in particular.

Michael Gibney is a pastor affiliated with the Church of the Lutheran Brethren who just moved with his family to Baton Rouge. Their home was flooded by the recent heavy rainfall and they also lost their two cars. They have no insurance for their home because they are located in a no-flood zone, and—to top it all off—Mike’s wife’s grandfather recently passed away. Mike is also currently in the midst of a battle with cancer.

If you’d like to donate money to the Gibney Family, please make your checks payable to the church but write “Gibney Family” in the memo line. There is an offering plate at the back of the sanctuary. Please note that these donations will not be tax-deductible, since the money is going to one specific family.

Watch Mike’s video below for a firsthand look at the recovery efforts.
