Along with many thousands of other South Carolinians, churches and people in the Presbytery of New Harmony have sustained property damage from the flooding that occurred last weekend in our state. By the grace of God we will recover and flourish again soon. Our Presbytery has been working with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to get support lined up for short and long-term recovery efforts.
Knowing that there are many good congregations and people in our Presbytery and in the world who want to help, we would like to let you know that we welcome monetary support at this time. Then, once needs are assessed, PDA will have the structure in place for volunteering on the ground in the clean-up effort. Presently, monetary support is the most efficient method of assistance. If you wish to donate there are two basic routes: you may give directly to this Presbytery to meet the needs herein, or you may give to Presbyterian Disaster Assistance to meet the needs of flood victims in our state.
To give directly to the Presbytery of New Harmony, you may:
- Give through your PC(USA) church, which is the preferred method for individuals.Those monies will be sent directly to the Presbytery by your church.Mark your contribution NHP – Flood Relief.
- Donate individually to the Presbytery. Send your donations made payable to:

You may designate your contribution to a specific damaged church if you desire. As with all contributions that are generously given to the Presbytery, you can be assured that your donation will be used only for the purpose which you designate. If, by the grace of God, we receive more funds than we can use, any excess will be given to the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance for future needs.
