Lutheran Disaster Response

Our goal is to collaboratively and actively engage church members as volunteers both in disaster preparedness and for response at the time of a disaster in Tennessee.

Lutheran Services in Tennessee is linked in efforts for disaster with the Disaster Preparedness and Response Team for the Southeastern Synod ELCA. This planning is being carried out by disaster response professionals within our Synod. Through a collaborative effort within the Synod, its conferences and congregations and Social Ministry Organizations and our ecumenical and interfaith partners, we are prepared to respond when disaster strikes within our synod - bringing the hands and heart of Christ to a hurting community. Congregations are encouraged to prepare for the impact of a disaster and actively participate with community groups in both preparedness and response.

Disaster Response 

When disaster strikes in your community,
the local Lutherans are the
first form of Lutheran Disaster Response.

Every time Lutherans act in service
to their neighbors in need following a disaster,
they are being Lutheran Disaster Response.
