The beautiful quilts given to Bethlehem Lutheran Church with love have warmed us with embraces from congregations all over the country.  

 

As our pews undergo repairs, we will now send the quilts into service for others, preparing them to ship off to various organizations including Lutheran World Relief, Lutheran Social Services/NCA, The Lamb Center, Project Linus, and Hurricane Florence Relief.

Since 1917 LSS/NCA has bold served, confident in the knowledge that every small gesture is a miracle.   LSS welcomes families and children who see refuge from war, poverty and persecution, engaging the community to gather the resources refugee families need, providing support, compassion, and hope as they build new lives and new homes in the Washington DC Metro area.  Beginning in September, BLC will host the offices of this vital ministry.  We are excited and honored to welcome LSS/NCA Refugee Services to Bethlehem!

- 86% of the world's refugees are hosted by developing countries.

- Of the 20 million refugees worldwide, 51% are under the age of 18.
