WHO IS “WELCOMING THE STRANGER” REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP GROUP?

We represent five Lutheran church congregations from West Edmonton and Parkland County:

  • Mount Zion - 11533 135 St NW, Edmonton, AB, (780) 455-3638
  • Our Savior - 18345 62b Ave NW, Edmonton, AB (780) 444-6769
  • St. John of Golden Spike - 51301 RR 274, Spruce Grove, AB (780) 963-7656

OUR GOALS FOR REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP:

  • Working through Canadian Lutheran World Relief we plan to sponsor a family from among the ‘neglected refugees’. These people are in extreme need having no secure home, no money, and minimal food and shelter and we have so much to share.

 

Refugee sponsorship is about hope in the face of desperation!

DURATION:

Our financial commitment to the refugee family is for one year. It is not unusual for a refugee family to become economically self-sufficient within the first year of sponsorship. However, relationships and friendships last forever, so our contact with the family is anticipated to be on-going, even after the year of sponsorship is over.

YOU CAN HELP WITH FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE:

The estimated cost of sponsoring a refugee family for the usual one-year period is approximately $30,000.00. You can use the secure forms below to help us reach that goal by making a one-time donation now, or by pledging a monthly amount that you wish to contribute over the next year.

YOU CAN HELP BY VOLUNTEERING:

We are recruiting a network of volunteers to support our refugee family through their first year. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities please contact Pastor Philip Penrod at Our Savior Lutheran Church - PastorPhil@oslc-oursavior.com.

 

THANK YOU!
