An Invitation to Church Leaders About the Refugee Crisis

The situation with fleeing Syrians and Iraqis is heart wrenching.  Many people, including those in your congregation, are wondering how they can help.  They just don’t know where to turn.  

If you would like to help your congregation better understand the Middle East refugee/internally displaced persons (IDP) crisis, The Outreach Foundation has resources to help you.  We have prepared the following for your use:

  • Copy content for your website, newsletter or other communiques describing the crisis, how members can respond, how the funds will be used and who will distribute them. 
  • A document that can be printed and used as a bulletin insert.
  • A video that can be shown to your congregation highlighting the crisis and your church’s response. 

No matter what happens today, Christ will be glorified in this situation. But, we can all help in the meantime by showing the love and caring of Jesus.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
— John 16:33
