#WeChooseWelcome for Refugees
Show Your Support!

 

I was a stranger and you welcomed me. – Matthew 25:35

The Syrian war has created the worst humanitarian crisis since WWII. Four million have fled and another seven million are displaced within Syria. Turkey, Lebanon, and Germany are each resettling 1-2.5 million refugees. After thorough vetting, the U.S.A. has taken in only a few thousand and some politicians are trying to stop further resettlement. PC(USA) has challenged congregations to speak out, requesting elected officials to welcome more Syrian refugees into the U.S.A.

On June 12, many in our congregation showed their support for the #WeChooseWelcome campaign by participating in a group photo with our “We Choose Welcome for Refugees” banner. This photo was just the first step. Now we encourage you to share this picture with friends, family, and elected officials to let them know we are willing to extend the hand of hospitality to those experiencing the devastation of their country.

The photo is posted on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter:
