COMMUNITY DISCERNMENT MEETING: SPONSORING AN AFGHAN REFUGEE FAMILY

We have all seen the images of Afghan families desperately trying to flee their country and, more recently, Ukrainian families seeking refuge from war. It is hard to know what to do or how to help but we can do something if we work together. OLG’s Immigrant Ministry invites you to join us on Tues, April 5th at 6:30 pm in the School for a Community Meeting as we discern whether to formally sponsor an Afghan refugee family that has resettled in our area. Come pray, discuss, and discern with us what role OLG can play in this crisis. What is sponsorship? What are the needs? In what ways can we partner with resettlement agencies? What can our community offer? How big of a team of volunteers can we gather to support our efforts? Contact Jennifer for more information.
