Refugee Awareness Sabbath - Promote Refugee Awareness in Your Church
Real People Real Needs
In God's providence, three million refugees have come to North America since 1975. Yet many of us are not aware of the of refugees in our own communities, the odds they struggle against, and God's purpose in their coming here. Adventist Refugee and Immigrant Ministries invites churches across North America to remember the 42 million displaced people worldwide, including 3 million refugees right here in North America. Some churches choose to focus on Refugee Awareness around the time of World Refugee Day designated by the United Nations and celebrated annually on June 20. The first official North American Division Refugee Awareness Sabbath is scheduled for June 14, 2014. But if you miss that date, you can share the needs of refugees anytime, or spread out the ideas and resources below throughout the year. God will bless as you plan.
Involve Your Church! Possibilities are endless! Pause for a moment of silent prayer for refugees or fill a Sabbath with activities dedicated to building awareness of the plight of refugees and our God-given opportunity and mission to reach out to these "strangers in our midst".
