How You Can Help Syrian Refugees This Christmas
Canadian Baptists nationwide have committed to sponsoring 100 Syrian refugee families. Our Convention hopes to provide sponsorship for at least half of those families. They have made many resources available for any churches that would like to help.
Most of us can’t sponsor a refugee family on our own but we can help in other ways. The Festival in Charming Churches is providing Islanders with an opportunity to contribute.
PEI churches, including two of our own Baptist churches, are hosting this province-wide fundraising effort. Each event features storytelling and music performed by Island artists. Proceeds will be donated to help Syrian refugees.
Why not get into the Christmas spirit a little early and help Syrian refugees at the same time? Check out the festival’s schedule to see if there’s an event being hosted near you!
