At Artisan, we’ve been studying the book of John in 4-5 week chunks for a few years. We resume this piece by piece study of John’s Gospel in February!series details
Catholic Family Center is the local organization that acts as a hub for all refugee relief and resettlement efforts. With recent changes to federal policy regarding refugees, CFC is seeing a drastic reduction in federal funding. This means that their ongoing work with refugees who are already here in Rochester will severely curtailed. For example, their case manager staff is expected to be cut by nearly 90%! This could be catastrophic for many vulnerable people who have already experienced war, rape, loss of family, and displacement from their homes.
We will have lots of details in the coming days about great ways to get involved with hands on volunteer work, but in the meantime, there is a significant immediate need for financial support. Artisan is collecting funds for this purpose and will pass on 100% of what we receive to Catholic Family Center’s direct work with refugees. We already raised over $6,000 in one week!
Please join us in doing this important work in our community. You can give online at artisanchurch.com/giving or through our easy and secure mobile giving interface, which you can access through our church app or by texting “artisan” to 77977.

CFC is also hosting a refugee volunteer fair February 27th from 5:30–7:00 at Asbury United Methodist Church, 1050 East Ave. Please attend to find out other ways to get involved!learn more
