The Christian Reformed Church and its members, for decades, have had a longstanding commitment and tradition of welcoming refugees — fellow image bearers of Christ. Our churches and faith are stronger and richer because of this. By marking World Refugee Day (held annually on June 20), a day for promoting awareness and education on refugees, you can play an active role in continuing this commitment to welcome the stranger and bear witness to hope.

Thrive, the Christian Reformed Centre for Public Dialogue, and World Renew invite you and your congregation to recognize World Refugee Day throughout this month (and beyond) by the use of our toolkit. It is our prayer that this toolkit furthers the already faithful work of the Christian Reformed Church in welcoming refugees.

In this toolkit, you will find resources and ideas for celebrating the day both as congregations and individuals. Whether you participate through worship, acts of advocacy, building community, or drawing on your own creative ideas, you can actively demonstrate that Christians across North America stand in solidarity with refugees and continue to lean into Matthew 25:35.

Access the toolkit and the most recent stories of hope and Christian witness today!
