We heard from refugees in April…now it’s time to act
At our last storytelling gathering on April 13, we featured four Middle Eastern refugees as our storytellers. We also had a Middle Eastern meal prepared and served by one of the refugees and two musicians from Afghanistan who provided music along with our own Peter Baird. Out of this collaboration with World Relief, Bethany Presbyterian Church has decided to sponsor a Middle Eastern Refugee family through the Good Neighbor Team program at World Relief, a Christian organization that resettles immigrants and refugees. Bethany is the sponsoring host church for our New Worshiping Community, “The Gathering.” Through our work, Bethany has found a concrete way to respond to the stories we heard on April 13.
ALL are invited to attend an information session at Bethany Presbyterian Church on Friday, June 9 at 5 p.m. to learn more about World Relief and Bethany’s efforts to aid in the refugee crisis.
