Wisconsin was recently hit with torrential rains that caused state-wide flooding, and a State of Emergency was declared in Buffalo, Chippewa, Clark, Columbia, Crawford, Eau Claire, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Sauk, Trempealeau, and Vernon counties. In Wisconsin we are well aware that recovery from flooding takes time and resources. Bishop Jung requests assistance from local church members in three different ways: first, take a special offering at your worship services and church events in the coming weeks, designated for Wisconsin Disaster Response, Advance #7775; second, assemble flood buckets and deliver them to our Conference Center; and third, pray. “The third request is simple, but powerful and desperately needed,” he said. “Encourage your people to pray. Remember those affected by flooding during your worship time. Join your hearts and voices to your sisters and brothers across the conference so that we might be a faithful witness through intercession and petition. Mighty acts happen when the people of God join together in prayer.” Click here to read a letter from Bishop Jung with more information, and watch for future updates from our Conference Disaster Response Team as we learn more about the lives affected and the property damaged throughout our state.
