Join us at Good Shepherd September 10 directly following the 10 am service (around 11:15 am) for an all-ages program of education and service to learn about, serve, and pray for local refugees. A hands-on children and youth program will be offered downstairs to help kids understand what life is like for refugees, while adults hear from a local refugee about her journey from Iraq and the experience of being a refugee in the U.S.
Afterwards we’ll do a simple multi-generational service project at the church to help local refugees feel welcomed and aid them in settling in to their new homes. Donations will be collected for Rocky Mountain Lutheran Family Services, the local agency the Episcopal Church partners with to resettle and support refugees. Finger food will be served. Please sign up below or in the narthex at church so we have enough refreshments and supplies for the service project.
