Our partners at Refugee Services of Texas are preparing to resettle 324 Afghans over the next few months. Their staff believes they will start receiving several families every week, which means they will need lots of help from local faith communities and volunteers.

To prepare to help with this effort, our church will be hosting an RST Volunteer Orientation & Training this Sunday, September 12 at 4:00 pm. The orientation will take place in the sanctuary and on Zoom (see info below), and will be livestreamed to Facebook. This training will help you understand the process of welcoming refugees, from picking a family up at the airport to stocking a pantry/refrigerator to furnishing an apartment to providing mentorship or legal assistance.

Once you are officially trained, you will be able to sign up for future volunteer opportunities through RST and help make a difference. Feel free to invite a friend to participate, and we hope to see you on Sunday!
