World Refugee Day
RCA Global Mission is joining with Christians around the world to observe World Refugee Sunday. Participants can choose the Sunday before or after June 20, which is World Refugee Day; the dates for 2020 are June 14 or June 21. Will you and/or your church join us in raising awareness about refugees and displaced people, and living out the biblical mandate to care for those seeking refuge? If yes, fill out this form to receive a free World Refugee Sunday tool kit.
Inside the tool kit you will find options for:
- Call to worship
- Prayer of confession and intercession
- And more!
We encourage you to also consider taking a special offering to support RCA missionaries who work with refugees (JJ TenClay, Shelvis and Nancy Smith-Mather), or to support a local refugee care program on World Refugee Sunday. You can learn more about how to care for refugees and displaced people on Faithward.
Several organizations have collected resources to help you plan your church’s Refugee Sunday—everything from prayers and discussion guides to videos and infographics.
