Bulletin Insert - Hurricane Michael Assistance with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance

http://pda.pcusa.org/pda/resource/michael-bulletin/ PDA is responding to Hurricane Michael. Before the devastating Category 4 Hurricane made landfall, PDA reached out to the presbyteries in the path of the storm to offer resources and prayers. We will deploy National Response Team members in the coming days to assist Presbyterian and community leadership in developing short-term response plans and provide a ministry of presence.  More information will be available soon
