Walk For Refugees and Detainees: On Sunday, November 8th, Pastor Lou will walk in Highland Park for refugee awareness and to raise funds for Inter-Faith RISE. See below for a description. I invite you to walk with me. We will leave our church at 12:30 that day. The Walk is 2-4 PM.
My goal is to raise at least $500 if you would like to support me. You can make checks out to THE CHURCH IN BRIELLE PASTORS DISCRETIONARY FUND. I have made arrangements for our church to get our name on the T-shirts to show our support.
WELCOMING THE STRANGER AMONG US
Our mission statement: Interfaith Refugee and Immigrant Services and Empowerment (Interfaith-RISE) is an official affiliate site of the US Committee for Refugees & Immigrants. We are committed to resettling refugees in central NJ, assisting asylum seekers before and after release from Elizabeth Detention Center, and supporting local faith and civic groups as they advocate for and work with refugees in their communities. Interfaith-RISE assists with housing, ESL, social services, education, medical assistance, mental health services, transportation, and supportive community integration as families and individuals journey towards self-sufficiency and independence. http://www.interfaithrise.org/
