We sense the opportunity to be more intentional in serving refugees, here in Lansing and across the world. We are grateful for the friendship and wisdom of Arrive Ministries, Questscope and World Relief on this journey.
We welcome your participation in our discernment of the future social justice initiatives.
- Questscope is walks alongside young people whose lives are ravaged by war and poverty. We provide emergency assistance, alternative education, and mentorship. And places to bloom again where hope is possible.
- World Relief is a global Christian humanitarian organization that brings sustainable solutions to the world’s greatest problems – disasters, extreme poverty, violence, oppression, and mass displacement. We partner with local churches and community leaders in the U.S. and abroad to bring hope, healing and transformation to the most vulnerable.
- Arrive Ministries is empowering the local church to demonstrate God’s love as we welcome and bring lifelong transformation to refugees and immigrants in Minnesota.
