With Hurricane Harvey devastating South Eastern Texas and with Hurricane Irma’s damage to Florida we encourage individual and churches who wish to reach out to PDA.
PDA has a long been a witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crisis and catastrophic events.
PDA continues to be in touch with presbytery leadership in New Covenant, Mission, and South Louisiana Presbyteries. National Response Teams are being deployed into the affected regions when it is safe to do so.
We will post more information on relief efforts for Hurricane Irma as we receive them.
