September Missions Update

September Missions Update

DID YOU KNOW… Your RB Community Missions Committee, as a standing committee of your Session, is continuously working throughout the year to reach out and help those in need, those in crisis and those in search of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Although we are having to work within the COVID restrictions, we are putting our Lord’s gifts to work to aid and help those devastated by the California Fires and the Hurricanes Laura and Sally through the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) program.  

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, working from its base in Louisville, Kentucky, 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 events. They operate as 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.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (

  • Focuses on the long-term recovery of disaster impacted communities.

  • Provides training and disaster preparedness for presbyteries and synods.

  • Works collaboratively with church partners

  • Connects partners locally and internationally with key organizations active in the response — United Nations, NVOAD (National Voluntary Agencies Active in Disaster), World Food Program, Red Cross, FEMA and others.
