Register for World Refugee Day 2023
As Christians, we seek to live out God’s call to welcome refugees and asylum seekers. With multiple threats facing our siblings across the globe and ever-changing legislation, where are God’s people Finding Freedom?
You’re invited to an ecumenical worship service in honor of World Refugee Day 2023. This is a celebration with those who have found freedom and a call to continue the work of liberation until all of God’s children know a safe home.
