Afghan Refugee Outreach

In January of 2022, we joined a ministry partner, (RHPs) Refugee Hope Partners and several other churches in an outreach to Afghan Refugees temporarily placed in a hotel down the street from Providence.  Now, those families are dispersed into homes and communities around Raleigh.  As we continue to engage our friends, our outreach has shifted to five (5)  primary areas of ministry.  We would love to have you join our efforts:

1. Prayer

Please pray for our outreach ministry.

2. Monday Night Fellowships: 2nd & 4th Monday of each Month

We gather to fellowship and share a meal, all in hopes of building relationships and assisting them in their journey to anchor in Raleigh, NC.  On Monday nights, we have begun separating families.  Women and children meet in Ballroom 1 and Men and Teenage boys meet in Ballroom We need volunteers to engage with women, attend to  children and engage

3. Friday Morning Ladies’ Tea:  2nd Friday of each Month
