Answering Our Call

 Called to Be Faithful Stewards

We are called to follow Jesus.  Part of our call is to be faithful stewards.

Many have taken stewardship action and provided for refugees' extreme needs.  You, too, can  be involved in helping.


 Distributions of household items including heaters are planned and carried out daily.  With temperatures in the 30's to 50's more heaters are needed.

Classrooms and Lessons

Syrian refugee children are learning both Arabic and English.  The classroom gold fish is helping them learn animal classification.   It is fun to see how happy the children are looking at the fish scales with their magnifying glasses.
