Thus says the Lord of hosts, render true judgments,
show kindness and mercy to one another . . .
Zechariah 7:9 (ESV)
To follow up on the refugee crisis report that appeared in our Sept. 30th issue, and in response to those in the OPC community who have expressed an interest in contributing towards refugee relief, we wanted to let you know that
the Committee on Diaconal Ministries (CDM) is now receiving gifts designated for this purpose.
The need is great! The world is facing a record number of internally displaced people and/or refugees today. Some suggest that number could be upwards of 60 million people!
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 may be made out to “Orthodox Presbyterian Church,” noted for “Refugee Relief,” and mailed to the OPC Administrative Offices at 607 N. Easton Road, Bldg. E, Willow Grove, PA 19090.
Please pray for the CDM for wisdom as it seeks to faithfully carry out this labor on behalf of the church.
