Disaster Response is a form of short-term missions! Get a jump on the busy summer season and consider participating in a short-term missions trip this May by joining one of these hurricane relief teams! From May 5 to 12, a team of 10-12 is being formed to work on the homes of members of OPC churches in San Juan, Puerto Rico, still suffering from damage that occurred during Hurricane Maria in September 2017. From May 26 to June 2, the OPC Singles Facebook group is sponsoring a week of hurricane relief ministry in Houston, TX, where volunteers have been serving since Hurricane Harvey struck that city in August 2017.
