More than 70 million people worldwide are forcibly displaced, the majority of whom are women and children. That's roughly 1 in every 110 people.

This month, we join churches around the world in supporting World Refugee Sunday to remember this need and respond in practical ways. Today we will give you a taste of what Tenth is doing to stand with refugees.

Tenth’s strategy for refugee support is based on Leviticus 19:33-34.

When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.

It’s local: in Vancouver we welcome refugee asylum seekers. Did you know that Canada has settled the largest number of refugees in the world this last year? Currently, Tenth is walking alongside 7 refugee families and is connected to many others. 

It’s global: with our long term partners in Lebanon, which has the highest percentage of its population seeking asylum—at least 1 in 4 people living in Lebanon are refugees.

We invite you to answer God’s call to love the stranger as yourself:

Pray for refugees around the world, Lebanon and in Canada

Give to our refugee fund so that we can continue to offer welcome for refugee families—anytime, and there will be a designated offering next Sunday
