Refugee Resettlement Ministry

Since Spring 2016, First Church has engaged in refugee resettlement, beginning with two families, Syrian and Kurdi. In partnership with Refugee One , a resettlement organization in the Chicago area, our refugee ministry team prepared apartments with furniture and household items and assisted day-to-day activities such as grocery shopping, paperwork, homework, language skills, and job applications. To donate cash or help with household supplies, click here. For more info on the refugee ministry team and forms of assistance that would be helpful, contact Pam Kendall at
