Our ongoing generosity here at First Presbyterian allows us to respond quickly, intentionally and thoughtfully to those in need. Our faith compels us to give in ways that amaze the watching world. While many in Texas are suffering, we here at First Pres see these painful moments and respond. Our ongoing giving allows us to respond quickly. Our Mission Committee has approved a generous donation to the Presbyterian Disaster Relief Fund.
Additionally, our Session voted to approve a donation to the Presbyterian Disaster Relief Fund, fund DR000169-Harvey. This donation shall be funded by a special offering this Sunday, September 3 and Sunday, September 10, dedicated to the much needed relief. Please be in prayer over these next days about how God may be calling you to give in this critical time. Please indicate “Hurricane Relief” on your offering envelope, check, or online giving to differentiate it from your tithes and offerings to the church.
As we saw with Katrina, the need will be great and lasting for a while. The Mission Committee will also discuss longer range aid that can be given in due time. Thank you for your continued prayers and support of those suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
