Wildfire Donation Information

Firefighters continue to battle more than a dozen wildfires across California. Your prayers are essential. Pray that people would turn to Jesus for comfort, assurance and hope. May those who are serving on the ground bring Jesus to them. In addition, Please continue to pray for those being affected by the fires. Pray for their safety and for peace. Include the first responders, as well, as they have been entering dangerous environments. Pray also for effective strategies for all relief agencies, including the CNH District Disaster Relief. You can assist with your gift. Even though damage assessments are pending, it is certain that dollars will be needed to church members, and communities in the lengthy recovery process that is ahead. You may donate as an individual and/or as a congregation to the PSD Emergency Relief Fund or the CNH District Disaster Relief Fund. Please note: Donations from the October 2017 wildfires will be completely distributed to those affected by that fire as promised.
