Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
Supporting PDA Mission Groups Serving in the Omaha Area
Due to concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance national office has cancelled all work groups through at least October 1. PCOC will not be hosting groups until that time.
Not at this time. For more information on volunteering, contact the Coordinator.
As a sub-committee of the Mission Committee, we were formed to coordinate and host groups of volunteers who stay at our church while performing local mission work. Our church facilities can accommodate up to 20 people sleeping in classrooms on deluxe air mattresses. We provide our volunteers with sheets, pillows, blankets, and towels. The newly renovated kitchen in the Great Room provides our volunteers with every kind of small electric appliance needed to prepare meals for their group.
Our Hosting Task Force also has a team of 75 PCOC volunteers who assist with washing linens, tearing down classrooms and setting up the sleeping rooms. We even have folks who prepare a dish to serve at a potluck dinner for the volunteers.
Church of the Cross is pleased to be the only Long-Term Host Site for the state of Nebraska. We were approved in August 2019 and have agreed to serve as a host site for a minimum of two years. It is a wonderful way to serve our partners in mission! Please contact the coordinator to volunteer.
