Refugee Co-Sponsorship

In a time when refugees are being reviled and threatened daily for political gain, MPUC will be lighting a candle against that kind of gloom by cosponsoring a newly arriving refugee family, via our Mission & Social Justice Committee, plus volunteers.

Minnesota Council of Churches is the lead co-sponsor in this project.  They’ve given us a detailed Refugee Co-Sponsorship Guide. Members of their expert staff do the “heavy lifting” parts as we partner with them. We are adjunct to them throughout a 4-month period.

We welcomed Chantal, Semucyo, Eric, Yves, Nadine, Kevin, and Denise on June 22, 2016!
