RSS Summer Kickoff

Come help us partner with RSS and bless some of our new neighbors in the refugee community!

What to Expect

The Refugee Support Services, Summer Kickoff is a great opportunity to celebrate this community and the work that is being done at the center. It is a time set aside for families to come together in support of each other, to welcome them in our community, assist in instructing and partaking in family activity games, provide fellowship, break bread, and hopefully make a new friend.

Lunch and refreshments provided

Outdoor activities, games and community social time

We are looking for your help to fill these bags. Examples of items would be books, bubbles, jump rope, chalk, checkers, deck of cards, various card games, balls, board games, coloring books with color crayons, twister, etc. You can drop your items of at the church office or bring them on Sundays, as we will provide a drop off area in the back of the church
