MISSIONS in partnership with the Presbyterian Church (USA)
We fully support the many mission programs of the PCUSA through our church budget and with special offerings.
In particular, we support the work of the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, a program of the PCUSA which is noted among disaster relief workers for being one of the first agencies on the scene after a disaster as well as one of the last agencies to leave afterward - often 5 or more years later after helping folks to rebuild their homes, their businesses, and their lives.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance enables congregations and mission partners of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic event.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. The core budget, including staff and administrative costs, is funded through the One Great Hour of Sharing, and its program work is additionally funded through designated gifts.
