Border Crisis

In the recent months, we have seen a flood of Central American unaccompanied children and mothers with children, primarily from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, making their way across Mexico and into the United States.  This influx – motivated largely by violence in their home countries – has been deemed a humanitarian crisis.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is already busy working on several fronts: assisting congregations and mid councils along the border as they minister to needs, consulting with the Office of Immigration Issues and the Office of Public Witness to identify crucial advocacy concerns, and collaborating with ecumenical and interfaith partners experienced in working with refugees and immigrants.

Presbyterian Disaster Assistance

Please give: Your financial gifts to DR000095—Refugee Emergencies will equip Presbyterian congregations and mid councils to continue to meet needs during the initial phase. And the need for assistance is not likely to end soon, so your gifts will help meet ongoing demands. You can give through your Presbyterian congregation, make a gift online, or mail a check to Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), PO Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.

Please Pray: that the grace and love of Christ will cover the children and families who have come, that they will be treated with dignity and respect, and that their safety and protection will be ensured.

A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children. 40% of the Pentecost offering can be retained by individual congregations wanting to make an impact in the lives of young people within their own community. The remaining 60% is used to support ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency. #pcusa #pentecostoffering #church
