Refugees

Refugees - Children in Refugee camp A refugee is a person who has fled their country because of persecution, war or violence. In both the Old and New Testaments, God calls us to care for the vulnerable. The EFC supports a video training program for churches called Welcome Church and an annual event each June called World Refugee Sunday. The EFC facilitates a Refugee Resettlement working group which has published a free downloadable resource called Welcome the Stranger: A Canadian Church Guide to Welcoming Refugees.
