Special Appeal - Severe Flooding in West Virginia Print E-mail

Severe Flooding in West Virginia - 25 confirmed dead, over 500 homes damaged or destroyed. Search and rescue continues!

LCC is in contact with the Ohio District, which includes West Virginia, regarding the recent flooding. We are working with their Disaster Response Coordinator, Mary Bates.

They are still in the assessment stage as they review the damage and determine the needs. With more heavy rain in the forecast search and rescue operations, as well as damage assessment, will be impacted.


LCC is asking for the following to help those suffering in West Virginia:

PRAYER - Please keep the individuals and families in your prayers, as well as the first responders, as they continue the search and rescue.

GIFT CARDS - Gift cards for Home Depot and Walmart are needed for the affected families, those are the two primary stores serving the area.

Thank you for your Compassion for those who are suffering at this time. With all the rain, there was a rainbow that appeared in the sky, reminding us of what our Lord said in Genesis 9:16 "Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."

Please continue to check our website - - as we will be posting updates as we receive them.

No one likes disasters - but ALWAYS, in the midst of Disaster and their recovery, God and His people work in mighty ways showing people HIS Mercy and Compassion!

Serving Together, Serving Christ Jesus, so we can serve others IN HIS NAME!

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. - 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

St. Matthew’s Mission to the Homeless Struggles to Survive Print E-mail
Kitchen St. Matthew Lutheran Church (LCMS) located at 2108 West 21st Street, Chicago, Illinois has, over the last 26 years, developed a unique ministry in the Pilsen Community to reach the growing number of homeless and unemployed people. St. Matthew is the only Lutheran church in the community with a Gospel- oriented mission to all the homeless and unemployed. El Comedor Soup Kitchen provides hot meals to feed the hungry and shares devotions to feed their souls. At the same time, it provides services in English and Spanish in a poverty stricken community of mostly

Latino families. Summer is a particularly tough time financially for the ministry. The soup kitchen continues to serve 200+ meals twice a week even though donations are down. Please consider supporting the important work of St Matthew as they continue to reach out and serve those in need in their community.
