St. John's Our Neighbor's House Ministry is back! We are welcoming as our neighbors Afghans and other refugees by furnishing the first apartments of refugees legally being resettled in our community by the U.S. State Department and International Rescue Committee. We have committed to furnish one apartment in November. We hope to do this with another parish to lighten our load and lift the generous donations we have already received from our community.
This year we are also expanding the ministry to include mentoring a family resettled by the IRC in Montgomery County. In teams of up to four we will be matched with a family. We will engage with the family weekly for six months to offer friendship, advice and support. We encourage you to join this ministry to welcome the stranger.
