Responding to the Afghan Crisis

We’re preparing for the imminent arrival of multiple Afghan families. They will need support as they rebuild lives and establish self-sufficiency. As their new neighbors, we can offer friendship, resources, advocacy, and life-skills mentoring. We are calling our congregation to a collective response. 


Give funds to help with the costs of renting living space, furnishing and equipping homes, food and clothing, transportation, medical services and legal counsel.



Volunteer your time in welcoming efforts through meeting one-time needs, serving more frequently in specific areas, or forming welcome teams to support a family for the duration of the first year with both relational and practical support.
