In the wake of disaster, we send volunteer teams nearby and across the United States. Those with building skills help to rebuild homes, and those who like to work with children lead "Camp Noah" – a week-long camp that shares God's hope and love with children in the days after a disaster.
For over twenty years, disaster teams have gone out at least annually to help rebuild homes. We have made many wonderful friends through the years!
2012 Summer Disaster Response Trip
Our Summer Disaster Response trip is scheduled for the week of June 23. We currently have 28 volunteers scheduled to leave Friedens Lutheran Church on Saturday, June 23 to go to the Sayre/Athens area north of Wilkes Barre, PA to repair homes that were devastated by flooding in September 2011.
Contact Us if you would like to join in the recovery effort. Please also consider supporting the volunteers with a financial gift in order to defray costs.
