Welcoming refugees is a part of who we are as the Christian Reformed Church. For decades now, CRC members have discovered the face of Christ among people seeking refuge—and the story continues. Over the past few days, we have been sharing stories of CRC members who have heard the call to welcome the stranger and who have responded joyfully.
#RefugeesWelcome Story from Loop Church CRC in Chicago, Ill.
"As a church we are cosponsoring a Muslim Syrian refugee family. They are the kindest and most hospitable people. Although we don't speak the same language, it's amazing to see the love in the parents' eyes for their children. One of the highlights so far of our church's weekly visits was teaching and playing Duck, Duck, Goose with the kids. Both the parents have expressed longing for friendships, for work and school, and for normalcy."
