Give to Texas Flooding Recovery

The eyes of the nation are riveted on the severe damage and worsening flooding unfolding in Southeast Texas due to Harvey.

Prayers and messages of support are valued, Gulf Coast Synod Bishop Michael Rinehart says in a blog post, but it is too soon for volunteers to come to the area. You can help with your financial donations to relief and recovery efforts.
