Southeastern Synod Youth and Young Adult Ministry

 

Southeastern Synod Disaster Ministry Committee is currently working in partnership with Inspiritus’ Disaster Team to provide assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally.  We are grateful for the leadership of Pastor Hope Knobler, who serves Grace Lutheran Church in Gulf Shores.  The people of Grace and Pastor Knobler are offering assistance in food distribution, working with Inspiritus to determine homes in need of tree removal and providing relief for those whose lives have been upended by Hurricane Sally.  Currently the greatest need is financial and if you give to the Southeastern Synod Disaster Relief these funds will assist our team in purchasing gas, supplies and other resources on the Alabama coast or you can give to Inspiritus’ here

We are also looking for general volunteers (who will abide by COVID-19 Guidelines) that can help mucking out, general clean up and especially those who have trucks that can help distribute food within the community.  We have secured housing if you are able to volunteer.  Please contact Pastor Jill Henning at jhenning@elca-ses.org if you are able to volunteer.  Please consider making a financial donation to assist us in our relief efforts.

ALL TENNESSEE 2019 - November 9-10

Check out the pictures from 2019 All TN HERE

All TN 2019 took place at Trinity LC, Tullahoma, TN


ALL TENNESSEE 2018

122 youth and adults met November 10 & 11 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hixson, Tennessee for All Tennessee.  During the event youth from across Tennessee gathered to learn more about the "GODISNOWHERE" theme by participating in different activities throughout Saturday afternoon.  Youth looked at where God was through an interactive Stations of the Cross activity, they also got to ask Pastor Ed Myers and Pastor Katherine Museus any question they wanted to ask, they learned about how we can be God's hands in the midst of disasters through the work of Lutheran Disaster Relief and put together hygiene kits for Lutheran World Relief.  To finish out their service that day they moved mulch on to the church's playground.  Worship started with a group of youth from Christ Kiswahili Lutheran Mission leading in song and during the confession participants were invited to take a piece of string to represent their confession and tie it on nails that formed "GODISNOWHERE" - a powerful way to see that God comes to us in the midst of our brokenness and as we communed together we saw God come once again in the body and blood of Christ. Special thanks to the volunteers of Trinity Lutheran Church for their hospitality and meals, as well as the ALL Tennessee planning team for their hard work putting it all together.
