Sunday, June 19 and World Refugee Day worship resources

The plight of refugees, especially those from Syria, dominated the news earlier this year. Although not currently as visible in the media, there are still 60 million refugees around the world—families who left everything behind to save themselves from war, persecution, or danger. And CLWR is on the forefront of providing care and support for hundreds of these families.
