UPDATE: Lutheran Christian Charities has enough scrub buckets and will take what has been made, so please do not make more. See the updated list of most needed items.

Immanuel will be a drop off location for Lutheran Church Charities collecting items to support those affected by Hurricanes and flooding. You can help by participating in the Scrub Bucket Project. Click here for a list of items to be collected and distributed to families affected by floods. We will be collecting items through Sunday, October 28 and are planning an assembly day of buckets on Friday, November 2.

Monetary donations are also welcome and can be made on-line through Lutheran Church Charities.

Drop off items at Immanuel’s main entrance lobby - Door #1.

We pray for those in need

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear
though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved
into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.

Psalm 46:1-3

Heavenly Father, We pray your presence upon all those affected by the devastation of Hurricanes Florence and
Michael. For those who have suffered loss of life, we come before you, interceding on their behalf, that you would grant them comfort and love. Sustain them, Oh Lord, through the loss of property and belongings, by giving them the hope that only you can provide in the midst of devastation. Send many volunteers and organizations to come to their aid in helping them rebuild their lives, homes, and communities. May your presence be evident to all through this time of early response and eventual rebuilding. May the people of all communities affected come together in love for their neighbor as they recognize Your love for them. Grant all affected the assurance that you are indeed an ever present help in time of trouble, that even after the storm has passed by, that you have not passed them by, but firmly remain with them through their restoration. We pray all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
