NE Church Helps Evacuated Neighbors

When a four-alarm fire broke out on Academy Road in Northeast Philadelphia Tuesday, evacuated residents were taken in for a time by St. David’s Lutheran Church. Kudos to St. David’s for being ambassadors for Christ in the neighborhood!

Does your church have a plan for how to serve your community in case of a disaster or other emergency? For information on how you can be prepared, check out the Lutheran Disaster Response Congregational Disaster Response Guidebook, which was prepared by Ruth Doty, Julia Menzo and Rev. Jennifer Ollikainen of our own LDR-Eastern PA.
