Refugee Sponsorship

Team for Refugee Action – Our Mission

The Team for Refugee Action (TRA) was formed in order to raise awareness
of the plight of refugees around the world. We seek to further our education and reflection regarding global inequities. Our goal is to sponsor a refugee family and to support the leadership of our youth in this outreach. As we get to better know Christ in the ‘other’ we hope to better know Christ in ‘ourselves’.  For we are all the same.

In June of 2010 our congregation heard the call to sponsor a refugee family.  We wanted to make a difference …and now, a little more than 2 years later on the threshold of meeting our new family!  We are very excited that all our waiting and preparation will finally be rewarded.
