Hurricane Harvey hit the Gulf Coast of the United States on Aug. 25, 2017, threatening millions of people with multiple days of heavy rain, winds and rising tides. While many have evacuated, significant damage is still expected, and thousands of people may be housed in shelters for an extended period of time.
Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliate is actively present, collaborating with community leaders and officials to initiate the proper responses, particularly the long-term recovery efforts. Together, we have a strong history of working with disasters in the Gulf Coast area. The road to recovery will be long, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected through every phase of this disaster.
We invite you to stand by our neighbors on the Gulf Coast during this time. Your gifts ensure that our church will be able to provide help and hope for those left homeless or otherwise affected by this disaster for years to come.
Gifts to Lutheran Disaster Response, designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” will be used entirely (100 percent) for this disaster until the response is complete. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support. Give today to support the needs in this response and others like it.

Orientation for 7-9th graders will be September 13th at 6:30. It is important that ALL confirmation students are here with a parent. This is a perfect time to meet Pastor Paul and to understand the requirements for the year.
5 youth from Grace and Calvary attended a 3 day training for Peer Ministry in Aug. Through discussion, role playing, and other activities these 5 youth learned how to help peers in need, welcome others, and be leaders. It was a fun time with lots of faith building!
ATTENTION WELCA (all ladies of Grace) The Fall Gathering will be held on Tuesday, Oct 3rd, 2017 at First Lutheran in Hinckley (4pm – 7:30pm). With this, if you are willing to provide something to add to a Silent Auction basket please feel free to drop it off in the church office. Thank you!!
