As a church we have been prayerfully considering sponsoring a refugee family to Canada.
We see this as a good and necessary response to the crisis ongoing now, and also to the call God gives us to 'love our neighbour.'
A Refugee Sponsorship Core Group has been tasked with creating and implementing a plan for RCAC to engage in refugee sponsorship through the Christian & Missionary Alliance Refugee Sponsorship program.
A Town Hall Meeting was held on Feb. 28, 2016 and this handout was given to each participant (English) (Chinese). In it you can read a brief history of our journey thus far, the Missions, Goals & Objectives of the Core Group, copies of 3 Bulletin Inserts given to our church members, and a proposed plan for Next Steps. (Please note: the Pledge Target has since been revised)
A Pledge Campaign will begin in March 2016.
If you would like to sign-up to learn more about the progress of this work and/or let us know that you would like to help welcome and settle a refugee family, please let us know by completing this RCAC Refugee Sponsorship Response Form.
You may also speak to or pose questions to any of our Core Group members, or email us at email@example.com.
