Lutheran Early Response Team Training

In L.E.R.T. training, we will address the nature of disasters and explore what our response should be to disasters as members of the LCMS. We will explore how Christ has shown mercy to us, and how we can show our community that same Christ-like mercy. The goal is to prepare you to be better prepared when a disaster strikes and to help you know how to respond within your congregations, and in word and deed, within the greater communities.
