Refugee Outreach

On Refugee Sunday, we will recognize the contributions of those who have immigrated to the US and the many needs of those seeking refuge outside of their countries. To celebrate, we are holding a virtual baby shower for Mohamed Abdullah’s family. Mohamed was granted asylum in 2017, brought his family to the United States and is now expecting his second daughter. Simply follow this Amazon link to purchase shower gifts.

Refugee Support Mission
During recent years Morrow Church has had a very active mission in supporting and hosting asylum seekers in cooperation with First Friends of New York and New Jersey, including: 
 
1) Visiting immigrants who are detained in Newark-area prisons while awaiting asylum decisions.
2) Anyone wishing to join our growing corps of immigrant detainee visitors can do so by contacting Dean Nielsen, co-ordinator at: dnielsen434@gmail.com.
