RefugeeOne partners with congregations to create opportunities for refugees fleeing war, terror, and persecution to build new lives of safety, dignity, and self-reliance.
Earlier this month, RefugeeOne sent Pastor Erik a letter inviting our congregation to continue the work of welcoming the stranger. You can find the letter here: RefugeeOne Letter
St. Luke’s is blessed by member Sara Spoonheim, Refugee One’s Director of Development.
