Disaster Response

Disaster Response

“We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)  —  Helping the hurting amid disaster


Disaster Update:

We pray for the communities in Southeast Texas affected by Tropical Storm Imelda, which have received over 28 inches of rain, with 10 more expected over the next 36 hours. These communities are in the “Golden Triangle” area of Texas, which was hit hard by Hurricane Harvey two years ago. The present flooding is equal to or worse than the flooding after Harvey. LCMS Disaster Response is working with LCMS Texas District President Rev. Michael Newman and District Disaster Manager Julie Tucker as they prepare a response. We thank God for the multiple churches and Lutheran Early Response Teams across Texas that are on standby to help.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
