New Jersey Bound: Youth Mission Trip 2014

This year's Nebraska Synod Youth Mission Trip will find high school youth and their adult leaders traveling east from the Nebraska Synod to join brothers and sisters in the New Jersey Synod to assist with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. On-site partners in New Jersey will be Lutheran Disaster Response personnel who are on the ground now, building relationships with people who have been impacted most by this natural disaster and setting up the infrastructure for a group such as ours to join them in service.

An Opportunity to Help Our Neighbors

Nebraska Farm Bureau is seeking volunteers for tomorrow, Thurs., Oct. 10, to assist Wayne and Dixon County Farm Bureau members in clean-up efforts following a tornado that struck the area last week.  Please contact Jessica Kolterman at 402-641-8471 or jessicak@nefb.org if you are able to volunteer.
