UCC Youth Refugee Video Contest Submissions

During the month of December, when the Church relives the Advent journey of preparing to welcome Christ, who was a refugee himself, our initiative lifted up Syrian refugees – It emboldens efforts to be an extravagant welcome by accompanying displaced people near their homeland and those who seek to resettle in the United States.

UCC Youth lead this initiative with their bold public voice for Refugee Accompaniment expressed through video submissions. Congregations join the bold public voice by engaging with scripture and with the situation of Syrian refugees in both the Middle East and in the United States. Get active in your own community through advocacy, compassion and personal welcome.

Visit the webpage at http://refugees.uccpages.org where you can find resources and information and watch the youth video submissions. Below is the winning video submission.
