North Carolina is welcoming Afghan refugees daily. You may be wondering how you can get involved and help to welcome our new neighbors. Join Rev. Jaye White (Director of Outreach Ministry) and Ellen Andrews (NC Area Director, Church World Service) for a webinar at 12:00 noon on Thursday, December 2 that will provide helpful information. They will be discussing:
- How many Afghan refugees are already in NC, and how many new neighbors are we expecting?
- What are some culturally sensitive dos and don’ts?
- How can small membership churches help?
- What is the Afghan Placement and Assistance Program?
- What is UMCOR doing to help?
The webinar is free to attend. If you cannot participate on Thursday, the webinar will be recorded and reposted for later viewing. Use the link below to join us as we learn more about extending hospitality to these friends who are coming to be among us.
