As a church family, St Matthew will be co-sponsoring 1-2 Afghan refugee families resettling in Grand Rapids through Samaritas (formerly known as Lutheran Social Services). Thank you to so many individuals who have already indicated their desire to help support the family with their time and talents as they adjust to a new home, a new life in the U.S., and integrate into our community over the next 3-6 months. Our first step as a church family in the co-sponsorship journey is to go through Samaritas’ “Refugee Co-sponsorship Orientation & Cultural Training.” The training is for everyone who plans to help support the family or is interested in learning more. Please plan to attend on Thursday, December 2 from 7-8:30 pm at church. A zoom link will also be available. Email Cori Scholtens with questions or if you would like the link: corischoltens@hotmail.com.
