At its recent meeting, the OPC’s Committee on Diaconal Ministries (CDM) received the following recommendation from its Disaster Response Subcommittee: “That the CDM receive gifts designated for refugee relief.”
The CDM concurred with this recommendation based on the following:
How might the fund be used?
The CDM is in the process of exploring the refugee ministries of several of our sister denominations in order to identify places where the use of diaconal gifts will be accompanied by the ministry of the Word. The CDM has reserve funds from which to draw for this purpose, but should you or your church also wish to participate, you can do so as follows.
Gifts for Refugee Relief:
Gifts may be made out to “Orthodox Presbyterian Church” and noted for “Refugee Relief.”
They may be sent to OPC Administrative Offices, 607 N. Easton Road, Bldg. E, Willow Grove, PA 19090.
Any gifts remaining by November 2018 may be re-designated by the CDM, most likely to General Disaster Response work.
Please pray for the CDM for wisdom as it seeks to faithfully carry out this labor on behalf of the church.
