What is Refugee Week?
Refugee week is a time for students to become aware of the refugee situation, experience what life as a refugee may be like and work to raise money for refugees. Together, we will consider the Christian response to refugees. Our hope is that your student’s heart will be aligned with the heart of God and will follow Jesus’s commands to care for widows and orphans and to love those who are in need.
