Supporting Refugee Families

RBC is one of the founding churches of ACCA. ACCA has approved funding to partner with Lutheran Social Services (LSS) to support a refugee family for one year, through the LSS Good Neighbor Program.

A small group of members and staff from ACCA churches are working to educate the community and train the 25-30 volunteers who will support a family that will be resettling to our local community.

There will be a dinner and training for volunteers on Saturday, September 8, at Peace Lutheran Church.
