Bringing Relief Following Hurricane Laura

Our Texas – Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod – ELCA has experienced another hurricane. This time, Hurricane Laura hit the coastline near the border of Texas and Louisiana. There was extensive damage to homes, businesses, and churches, especially in Lake Charles. The sanctuary at one of our synod congregations experienced significant damage – see photo above.
