Live or work in the Amherst-Williamsville area? Amherst Lutheran Church embraces the gifts of God to be used in the caring ministry of Jesus throughout His world.
"The ongoing snow event in the Southtowns and South Buffalo has created both challenges for the people living in those areas and opportunities for those of us who do not. A Western NY version of the ministry of Lutheran Disaster Response is being activated on three fronts.
First of all, anyone living in the North Towns or other areas who can get to Clarence is welcome to help provide homemade soup and baked goods to feed the crews of emergency workers who have come into the area. The place to drop off the soup and baked goods is the Clarence Firehall at 10355 Main Street Clarence, NY (716)-759-8842. If you have any questions about this endeavor please call Steve Biegner at (716) 868-1232.
Secondly, Lutheran Disaster Relief can always use additional monetary funding to help their relief efforts in the next weeks. Simply provide your gift through the offering plates in an envelop marked "Disaster Relief."
Finally, assuming that travel bans will be lifted by Saturday morning, Holy Trinity in Buffalo has been designated as a staging point for volunteers who would like to shovel snow for those who need assistance in the Southtowns. Volunteers should contact Mary Wolf, Office Adminstrator at St. Paul's in Eggertsville by calling 835-0407 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. to share their intention to report at Holy Trinity on Saturday morning. Pastor Lee Miller has volunteered coffee and hot chocolate at Holy Trinity and pizza around noon for those who would like to report back for food and fellowship.
Any questions? Call Pastor John Klatt at 716-523-1819. Thanks for considering this opportunity for be the hands and feet of Christ."
