In the news: Gaithersburg Congregation in Pennsylvania

Group 236 flood damage volunteersPensylvania is “close to home” according to the Rev. Dave Sonnenberg in coverage by WPMT on March 25, 2012, of rebuilding efforts in Lebanon County. Members of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Gaithersburg, Md., travelled to the region with Pr. Sonnenberg to join volunteer cleanup efforts of damage left by floods there seven months ago. Both Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee left an aftermath of personal and property devastation which still mar the landscape.

Assistance from the Marylanders, with family and personal ties in the area and faith-ties to help the neighbor, was well received. Hear a brief report on the efforts from the Harrisburg-area television station.
