For decades, Christian Reformed members in Canada and the United States have been faithful in welcoming refugees — image bearers of Christ. Our churches and faith are stronger because of it. By marking World Refugee Day this June, you can play an active role in continuing this commitment to welcome the stranger and bear witness to hope.
The Office of Social Justice, the Christian Reformed Centre for Public Dialogue, and World Renew invite you and your congregation to recognize World Refugee Day throughout the month of June by celebrating the contributions of refugees to your community and remembering the plight of refugees around the world in prayer and calls to action. World Refugee Day is usually marked on June 20, but whenever you choose to celebrate and remember, we hope these resources can be useful to you.
