The Session of Saint Andrew’s congregation strongly supports the sponsoring of a refugee family. About a year and a half ago a study group met for several weeks and looked at the issue of refugee sponsorship. The Mission Committee has discussed this at several meetings. At the September meeting of Session a recommendation to proceed was made. The first step is to seek a commitment of financial support. To that end we have included a sponsorship pledge form in the bulletin. In fact there are two forms with the hope that you might know someone who would also like to participate in the program. More information will be forthcoming. Copies will also be available at the back of the church and in The Link.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this matter.
