Come on down to the Gulf Coast

We’ve been receiving a lot of questions about how to help in the wake of Hurricane Isaac. People are asking if they can come down. First, you can pray. Second you can give: http://gulfcoastsynod.org/DonateNow.html . And yes, you can come down. Grace in New Orleans, Peace in Slidell and Gethsemane in Chalmette all have bunks and showers. Bethlehem in New Orleans has blow-up mattresses on the floor and showers as well. Plan a work camp or…

If you’d like to come down at a time when they’ll be a number of other volunteers, we are having a synod-wide Isaac-cleanup weekend October 5-7. Travel Friday. Work and worship Saturday. Worship and travel Sunday. The program cost for Operation Gulf Coast is $35, plus housing ($25/night at one of the congregations mentioned above. Come join us!
