LERT – Lutheran Early Response Team – A Lutheran Church Charity Ministry
We are hoping to grow the LERT network!
“LERT is here to bring relief to those impacted by a natural disaster that may be anything from cleaning out homes after flooding to removing trees as a result of tornados or hurricanes. We do not deploy unless invited and never charge for our services. Our main goal is to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need resulting from a disaster.”
A Basic Lutheran Early Response Team (LERT) training class will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 701 Washington St. Grafton, WI, on Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 9am to 2pm.
Participants (high school age and up) will be introduced to the LCMS Disaster Response program, learn the basic nature of disasters, the opportunities to respond to personal needs in disasters, and how Christians can support families, congregations and the public as the hands and feet of Jesus during trying times of natural disasters. Learn how you can help by tree and debris removal, flood cleanup, assistance in relief centers, and many more opportunities.
Lunch is provided.
The registration fee is $35.00 per person that helps cover the cost of the LERT manual, ID badge, a disaster response T-shirt, and lunch. Your LERT Trainer will distribute all training materials for the class.
