Scam or Spoofed Emails
Always read the subject line and email source in the FROM line, before opening such emails. If you aren't sure, reach out to whomever appeared to write the email and simply ask if they sent it. Bishop Rinehart, Pastor David, Pastor John or the Synod/LOL church staff will never contact you directly via email to ask you to send money to them personally. Please do not send money anywhere else on our behalf.
