Offering Bulletin Insert

Congregations are  asked to bring an offering to synod assembly to provide help and hope to survivors of hurricane maria. 
 Use this bulletin insert to take an offering for synod assembly this weekend in your congregations!

This year the offering is designated for our partner synod, the ELCA Caribbean synod for recovery efforts needed as a result of the hurricanes that hit this area hard.  Bishop Felipe Lozada Montanez will be present as our keynote speaker to accept the offering on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico.  As a church, we are standing by our neighbors who have been affected as they begin the long road to recovery.  Lutheran Disaster Response’s affiliates are collaborating with community leaders like Bishop Felipe and the ELCA Caribbean synod and government officials to respond.  Please give generously to our worship offering to support this response.

All pastors and deacons received an email from bishop mary last week with this bulletin insert and prayers for synod assembly weekend.
