What's Happening at FCC

Oshkosh Refugee Resettlement

posted Jan 4, 2016, 8:41 AM by Joe Wiedenmeier

I am happy to report that we have a Good Neighbor Team assembled and ready to go for the al-Sakka family. We had more than 20 volunteers at our organizational meeting, and others who weren't able to make it!

While the immediate needs of this Syrian family are covered, there is a continuing stream of refugees from all over the world being resettled in the Fox Valley. I am told there is an Iraqi family of six who will arrive soon.

If you or people you know are still willing to participate in this vital ministry - and there is definitely a need - please contact Tami McLaughlin from World Relief of the Fox Valley. You can reach her at: 920-891-7961, or tmclaughlin@worldrelief.org. I will be leaving Bethany for a new call as of January 15th and will no longer be able to coordinate volunteer recruitment.

Thank you once again for your interest. May God bless you and your communities richly.

In case you missed it . . . Here's what Zoe Bossert said about our church. 

"I have always loved the fact that from the very beginning, this church has taught me we are not supposed to blindly believe something is taught because it's what the Bible says but to instead interpret, question and get inspired by the teachings. This church helps inspire me to keep searching and have the tools to keep searching and continue looking for a loving community and new experiences to practice and find my faith. So thank you First Congregational Church for being that loving community. And I can't wait for the new experiences that are in store for us."

If our faith doesn't impact the world, our faith is of little value -- to us, or anyone else. Outreach, either by hand-ons volunteering or through our giving to many causes in Oshkosh and around the world, has always been essential to our faith. The Social Justice Ministry Group, Esther Core Team, and the Benevolence Ministry Group are focused on the world outside our doors.
