Cameron's Corner

Dear Friends,

Earlier this week, a friend texted me from John’s Island to check outside to see if there was a rainbow on James Island. Sure enough, it was there, stretching across both our skies. That rainbow reminded me of this one that I captured on our street after a late afternoon storm. You can just see hints of the double rainbow above it. It’s no wonder God used rainbows as a sign of his covenant with Noah.

What Noah didn’t know is that rainbows are formed when light from the sun changes directions as it passes through raindrops or water vapor, opening up a beautiful spectrum of colorful light. This Sunday, we will consider the role forgiveness plays in our lives as Christians. It is not easy for us to forgive those who hurt us. However, when we look at our lives through the lens of what God has forgiven us, it is like this rainbow, opening us up to glorious new possibilities of grace. I hope you’ll join us!

In Christ,

Rev. Cameron Smith

Meeting Human Needs

Meeting Human Needs through our support of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA)

September 11, 2023 Message from the Acting Stated Clerk of the General Assembly, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Rev. Bronwen Boswell…

“We mourn today for the thousands of families impacted by a powerful earthquake in Morocco on Friday. More than 2,600 people are known to have died from the 6.8 magnitude quake, and that number will increase in the days and weeks ahead as recovery efforts continue. Thousands more have been injured or left homeless as buildings, homes, and historic structures were toppled.” (To read Rev. Boswell’s full statement, please click the button below.)

Rev. Boswell’s message


Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is the emergency and refugee program of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. The core budget, including staff and administrative costs, is funded through the One Great Hour of Sharing, and its program work is additionally funded through designated gifts.


Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) enables congregations and mission partners of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to witness to the healing love of Christ through caring for communities adversely affected by crises and catastrophic events.


  • Over the years, YPPC has responded to PDA’s call for financial assistance for affected communities. Please give generously and make your check payable to YPPC and mark it “For PDA”. Thank you. 
  • In the coming months, we will have an “Hands-on-Project” which will enable our congregation to “Put our hands to work” for PDA!
