Hurricane Harvey struck the Texas coast in late August, bringing historic flooding, submerging homes, churches, businesses and roads, stranding thousands of people.

Your gifts are urgently needed now to support the communities devastated by this historic storm and those throughout the Gulf region who are still in the path of Harvey’s torrential rains.

The Global/Regional Mission Committee of FPC has committed $15,000 to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), our denomination’s on-the-ground response program. If you would like to give, please place cash or a check into one of the special envelopes found in the pews on Sunday.

All gifts will be sent directly to PDA.
