Supporting families on their journey of being independent

Our Refugee Resettlement Team, which is a combined team of our congregation with Good Shepherd Lutheran church and members of our community, is continuing to work with families who are from all areas of the world with school, getting jobs, and learning about our community. We continue to support them on their journey of being independent.

We will continue to work with the families in our six areas:
• Housing and welcome
• Transportation
• Health
• Education
• Cultural adjustment
• Jobs and finance

Our resource room which is open to all the refugee families in our community is running really low on cleaning supplies and personal care items that are needed by our many families who are now in our area. The list of items is included below. Please drop off any items in room D/E in the Discovery Zone.

Items needed:

  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Ethnic shampoo/Ethnic conditioner – for our African families
  • Body wash for showering
  • Hand soap
  • Laundry detergent
  • Bleach
  • Dryer sheets (not bleach dryer sheets)
  • Dish soap
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Paper towel
  • Toilet paper
  • Diapers – size 4
  • Baby wipes
  • Pillows
  • Twin sheets
  • Plastic bags – garbage and food size

This has been an amazing ministry of extending the hospitality, grace, and light of God’s love and hope to those most in need. However, we could always use more help with our family and other families who are moving into our area, so if you are interested please contact the office at 715-344-3557 or stpauls@stevenspointumc.org. If you would like to make a financial contribution to support our refugee family that would be appreciated. Please put Refugee Help on the memo line of your check. Please continue to pray for all the refugee families in our area who are working hard to adjust and make a new life in our community.
