LCMS Disaster Response
One of the hardest hit cities affected by Hurricane Harvey was Port Arthur, TX.
Approximately 30 families who are members of Trinity Lutheran Church in Port Arthur have lost their homes. The church itself was minimally affected and has become a staging area for the Texas District and LCMS relief efforts.
Rev. Timothy Dinger is the pastor of Trinity Lutheran in Port Arthur, and is the father of the NJ District's own Rev. Andrew Dinger (Holy Trinity, Somerset).
To make a donation to Trinity, Port Arthur as they serve these families in need, please visit Holy Trinity's secure online giving page here. You will receive a tax-deductible receipt from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (Somerset, NJ). All of the money collected for Hurricane Harvey relief through Holy Trinity's online giving page will go directly to Trinity Lutheran Church in Port Arthur.
