Sunday Services - Refugee Sunday

  • Roulette 509 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11217 United States (map)

Join us for our Sunday services at 10am or 11:15am. Everyone is invited to join leaders in our community for brunch in the neighborhood after both services.

Tuesday, June 20th, was World Refugee Day and this Sunday, June 25th, faith communities all over the U.S. will observe Refugee Sunday.

We believe in a just and generous expression of the Christian faith, and at the heart of this is the incredible love of Jesus Christ. The essence of this radical Gospel message can be found in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount where we learn our God wants restoration, not retribution, and that justice looks like loving those who are poor in spirit, meek, and in need of peace.

We also believe that Jesus' ministry was fit to his context and is a model for how we are to minister to others in our NYC context today. Five years ago that meant raising a relief fund to support our neighbors who were suffering after Hurricane Sandy. Today it can mean many things, but we believe one of the most challenging conversations happening in Christian circles today is about what it looks like to love refugees.

We believe a just and generous faith, modeled after the radical, restorative love of Jesus, calls us to step into the conflict, and love those whom Jesus loves. This is why we're taking 12% of the funds raised during our "Why Forefront" campaign and putting it into a "Refugee Relief Fund." 

We'll use this fund to support efforts already happening in our Brooklyn neighborhoods through organizations like CAMBAGreater NYC Families for Syria, and Gather for Goats.

To learn more about how we can serve refugees in our city and to be involved in helping us give from our "Refugee Relief Fund," sign up for our mailing list here.
