When a disaster strikes, lives are turned upside down. Survivors often need food, clothing, shelter and spiritual care as they begin to cope with tragedy and loss. Responding to these hurting people is a vital part of who we are as members of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. We show mercy and love to our communities because of the great grace and love that God has first shown to us.
The South WI District Office is sponsoring Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) training event to be held at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 10025 W. North Ave., Wauwatosa 53226, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, 2015.
Attendees will receive an LCMS Disaster Response credential that will give them credibility as they enter disaster zones in a coordinated and collaborative effort to assist those in need.
The cost is $20, which includes a training manual, LCMS volunteer vest, a morning snack and lunch. You will receive your certificate of participation and volunteer certification badge from LCMS Disaster Response and the Office of National Mission. If you have other certifications (CPR, First Aid, FEMA, etc.), please bring copies of any that you would like included on your credentials.
