Capital Campaign Mission Giving Update: Wild Fire Relief

Wildfire2020 brought not only the global COVID-19 pandemic but also devastating wildfires to the Pacific Northwest, including here in Oregon. Five churches in the Presbytery of the Cascades were deeply impacted:

First Presbyterian Church of Phoenix
McKenzie Valley Presbyterian Church
The First Presbyterian Church of Mill City
Springwater Presbyterian Church
Eagle Creek Presbyterian Church

The Capital Campaign Mission Giving Committee of our church (with Session approval) designated $3,000 to each church for their relief efforts. Letters of gratitude received from the churches indicate the financial gifts have helped in the following ways:
Assist church members who lost their homes or suffered other losses
Help stock a food pantry and support of food programs
Church repairs due to smoke damage
Rebuild fencing around a church building
Repair a church fire escape
Rehab a church parking lot

All of these churches are looking for ways to continue to help their congregants and their communities.
We are grateful that due to our congregation’s generous giving, we were able to help out our neighboring churches during a time of great need.
Capital Campaign Mission Giving Committee — Greg Aldrich, Rev. Brenna Dykman, Kathryn Hill, Linda Killen and Steve Primack
