Volunteers Needed?

Yes, we need volunteers to support our supply drives and other efforts. Watch your email from church for needs.


Our PCOC Mission Committee is partnering with Lutheran Family Services to provide support for the refugee community in Omaha.

Our eight-member family is from Syria – a mother, father, five daughters (ages 18, 15, 12, 10, 8) and one son (age 5), and they are settled in their new home, a 3 bedroom apartment, furnished by PCOC. All six children are attending Omaha Public Schools and have made a good adjustment.  Our refugee committee continues to support them in getting acclimated to living in America. Thank you to everyone who donated to make our efforts successful! You can read more in the October and November 2023 issues of the Cross Currents newsletter.
