Important Message about EBOLA

“Engaging the World with the Gospel of Hope”

- Fighting Ebola with Food -

Ebola is a disease that has captured the attention of the nation and most of the world. We hear stories of the thousands that have been affected in West Africa and have watched it play out in our own country.

Rev. Philip Saywrayne of Christ Assembly Lutheran Church, Staten Island is working to provide food to those directly affected by Ebola. He will work through a series of Liberian churches he had a hand in planting.

This disease has taken the lives of 14 of his family members. There are many working on containing the outbreak, but many Liberians and other nationals continue to suffer.

You can help by:

  1. Praying for an end to this outbreak
  2. Donating to the Atlantic District Fights Ebola Fund. Send a check payable to the Atlantic District LC-MS, 171 White Plains Road, Bronxville, NY 10708.  In the memo portion of the check, indicate it is for the Atlantic District Fights Ebola Fund.

These funds will be used to purchase rice and other food to be disbursed to those in need.

The Atlantic District has been given a challenge grant of $25,000 from the LC-MS if we can raise another $25,000.

Can you help us?
