Assisting Refugees: Next Steps

Over the past year or so, St. John’s parishioners, working with Lutheran Social Services Good Neighbor Program, have had the rewarding opportunity to furnish and equip apartments for refugees. We are now at a juncture for St. John’s to prayerfully consider how to move forward to a new level of commitment and participation in the Good Neighbor Program.

On Tuesday, July 11 at 6:30 pm, we will be meeting at Melanie Folstad’s house to discuss the whether we would like to engage with a refugee family in a mentorship or other capacity. We invite those interested in volunteering to lead or serve on refugee support teams to join us in discussing next steps.

We hope to see you there – please let Anne Derse or Melanie Folstad know if you will attend!

– Anne Derse and Melanie Folstad
