God is our refuge and our strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. —Psalm 46:1
As Christians our aim is always to respond to events in our community and our world with faith and try to help those in need. LOPC has a long history of responding generously to disasters all over the world. Through our alliance with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), World Vision International, and other partners, we have been able to contribute to disasters nationally and globally with the assurance that the funds contributed will go to help those affected. We make sure to vet our partners thoroughly and especially value the work of the PDA who commit to stay in communities and commit to long term recovery. While the disasters we have responded to have varied, we recognize that in nearly every situation money is the most versatile and helpful way to respond to an event beyond the needed skilled first responders.
Please consider giving to the Disaster Relief Fund through our new app or through a check to LOPC with “disaster relief” in the memo line. We will have a rolling Disaster Relief fund that will help us to process the more frequent natural disasters in our continued partnership with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance which cares for communities adversely affected by crises and catastrophic events.
