As humans we tend to honor the successful, elite, and powerful but Jesus came to turn that thinking upside down. His kingdom is a kingdom of the lowly, downtrodden, and powerless; in other words, each of us. Join us as we explore the fourth saying of a Gracist: I will honor you.
Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC), Refugee Services, anticipates serving an unprecedented number of Refugees, Parolees, and Special Immigrant Visa holders in the coming year. Once a family or individual is assigned to our care, we work to ensure their basic needs are met. We walk beside them as they acclimate to their new community and seek employment.
To meet the needs of those we serve, we partner with community organizations whose values reflect our own: Welcoming all, serving joyfully, and leading by example.
We invite your organization to partner with LSC as we walk alongside our new neighbors and friends. Please consider sponsoring a donation drive to assist our agency in providing for the basic needs of our most vulnerable community members.
