We have been hearing a lot in the news lately about Syrian refugees.  However, our neighborhood has been a major area for refugee resettlement for a number of years.  Our work with the Food Pantry has helped us meet neighbors from Egypt, Nepal, and Afghanastan among other countries.

On Wednesday evening, January 6, Kate Ayres, the Executive Director of ReEstablish Richmond, will be joining us to share about the experiences of refugees who are resettling into our neighborhood.  As a faith community, we can help refugees build new roots here in Richmond.  A first step is educating ourselves about their experience.  Join us on January 6 at 7:00 pm in Nave Hall for this program!
