HURRICANE DORIAN RELIEF

HURRICANE DORIAN RELIEF – Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) urges your support for those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, other island areas and parts of the United States. This was a strong storm which caused much damage. PDA is deploying teams to affected areas to meet with Presbyterian and community leadership to assist in coordinating relief efforts. If you’d like to contribute financial support to PDA for these relief efforts, you can write a check to Overbrook Church, with “PDA Relief” noted. If you’d prefer to contribute directly to PDA, please designate gifts to DR000194 online at https://pda.pcusa.org/ or by check with “DR000194-Dorian” on the memo line to: Presbyterian Church (USA); P.O. Box 643700; Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.

 

A Reminder From the Stewardship Team

On Sunday, September 22nd, at 10:00 a.m. in the Parlor, please plan to attend a discussion forum about how, together, we provide worship, service to God’s people, community building and faith sharing. We’ll also provide information about the 2020 budget plans of the church. As we move through the following five weeks of our stewardship drive, “Together We Serve the Lord,” prayerfully consider your part in the life of Overbrook Church, then pledge your time and financial resources by completing the pledge card you will receive in the mail later this week. Return it to the church by the close of the campaign on Commitment Sunday, October 27th, when we will, together, dedicate our pledges and celebrate our continued service to the Lord at a potluck brunch between services.
