From Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas, the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean, Lutheran Disaster Response of the ELCA(Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) is there. As a church, we’re standing by our neighbors who have already been affected, and we are ready to assist in additional locations as disaster strikes. The road to recovery is long, and Lutheran Disaster Response will be there to accompany those affected in every phase.

Your gifts will be used entirely (100 percent) for direct response. Together, we can help provide immediate and long-lasting support for those whose homes have been devastated or who have been otherwise affected by hurricanes. Give now to support the survivors of these disasters.




Families Together Cooperative Nursery School

Parent Support Group

Feeling befuddled, stymied, stressed out, depleted, dogged or isolated by particular parenting issues?

Parenting is the hardest job in the world. A support group offers a safe place where the pooling of empathy, wisdom, experience and resources can help provide the clarity and renewal for tackling difficult situations.

For the first time, FTCNS is offering a teacher-facilitated, donation-based parent support group led by longtime FTCNS teacher, Ellen Palmer. Each month will focus on a different topic. Our second meeting is coming up!

  • Where?: Immanuel Lutheran Church 1500 W Elmdale Ave, Chicago
    The school office—enter from the courtyard door.
  • When?: The third Saturday morning of each month
    That means our next group will meeting Saturday, 10/21
  • Time: 11:30am-1:00pm.
  • How do I sign up?: Please RSVP to
