Locally, our community was able to band together to support refugee resettlement. Grace Community Church was involved in all aspects of supporting a refugee family resettle. Their work began with fundraising events like a bike rally and benefit concert. This pre-arrival work helped build awareness in the community to prepare to accept a refugee family. Their efforts went beyond anything they had expected as the team supported the family through some very challenging times and gave endlessly of themselves. They continue to support the family as their sponsorship year comes to an end.
