Our Disaster Response Team needs you!
Attend one of two Virtual Info Sessions to learn how St. Luke’s is there for our congregation and community in the event of a storm. Whether you can help with calling shut ins, helping to clean up campus or with administrative needs, we need a team ready to respond if a storm hits our area. Attend one of 2 Virtual Information Sessions to learn more.

You can help by being part of our Disaster Response Team:

Immediately following the storm for 1 week or until volunteers return to their jobs.
Minor Home Repair
These volunteers will assist with minor home repairs as assigned by a St. Luke’s Crew Leader. We will have some tools available, but you are encouraged to bring what you will need. Your Crew Leader can help with that list. Immediately following the storm for 1 week or until volunteers return to their jobs.
