Disaster Report

Project Restore at Good Shepherd, Fremont

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Fremont is excited to announce a new area-wide initiative called Project Restore. Over the next few years Good Shepherd, Fremont will embark on an effort to connect volunteers from around the country with local residents and towns that need assistance with mold remediation (demolition, sanitizing, cleaning) as well as construction (electrical, plumbing, drywall, mudding etc.). These services are a labor of love and do not require payment or stipulations. Good Shepherd only wants to do their part to restore and bring healing to their community. Through Project Restore, Good Shepherd will offer housing, meals, showers, supplies, and plenty of work. If you are a group or know of any groups who would like to participate, click on here to learn more and get started: https://www.goodshepherdlutheranchurch.org/project-restore-signup


Apply for Disaster Recovery Grants

All District disaster relief funds will be disbursed through the local congregations to serve their communities. Congregations can apply for grant money to help serve their local communities by meeting their bodily needs while connecting them to the congregation so they can receive God’s Word and Sacraments to meet their spiritual needs. There is a two-step process for congregations to complete.

1. Congregations should download the Field Case Assessment Survey Form and complete one for each family/person they would like to assist with funds or other gifts. Keep all completed forms on file for follow-up.

2. Once the Field Case Assessment Survey Forms are complete and the congregation knows the total amount they would like to apply for, they should download and complete the Synod and District Disaster Response and Relief Grant Application. Once the grant application has been completed, save and send it, along with the Field Case Assessment Forms, to Rev. Kevin McReynolds, Nebraska District Disaster Relief Coordinator, at stpaullccc@gmail.com.
