Beloved Concordia Family and Friends,

Hurricane Harvey has wreaked havoc on the Coastal Bend area of Texas in the fall of 2017.  The remnants of the storm have been referred to as an “800-year flood event.” (Think about that.  800 years ago, it was 1219 AD!)  There are so many that have been and are STILL being impacted by this storm.

Volunteer to serve.

Pray.  

  1. Pray for those who are in danger, those who are stranded, and the hundreds, if not thousands, of first responders and citizens who are working tirelessly to provide rescue and relief.
  2. Pray for those who will see and hear of all the needs associated with this storm.  Pray that our response will be unprecedented as we move into action and demonstrate the heart of Jesus as we love our neighbors.

Give.

Your donations will help to provide the funds necessary to begin the recovery process and provide for basic needs.  There are many ways to give, but here are a couple of simple and powerful ways:

    • Make a donation to Concordia.  We have established the J2e3 Disaster Relief Fund for this purpose.  **100% of the funds collected will be passed along to those in need in the Coastal Bend and Houston areas for Hurricane Harvey relief.** CLICK HERE
    • Make your donation to the Disaster Relief Fund of the Texas District.  The district has also pledged that 100% of the funds collected will be applied to the needs here in Texas.  CLICK HERE

Please be aware that most agencies that receive gifts for disaster relief keep a percentage of what is received for administrative costs.  

** Donations to Concordia Lutheran are tax deductible.   In addition, 100% of all gifts received for the J2e3 Disaster Relief fund will be used solely for the purpose of providing relief, assistance, supplies etc. for those effected by the hurricane Harvey  event of 2017.   We recognize that assistance may need to go on for some extended period of time.  In accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and the Donor Bill of Rights, no funds given for this purpose will be used for anything not associated with or related to this disaster relief effort.
