OMAHA Refugee Resettlement
Partnering with Lutheran Family Services to assist Refugees settling in Omaha
Westwood Church is going to co-sponsor a refugee family with Lutheran Family Services (LFS). Our goal is to share the love of Jesus through hospitality, kindness, and support. When we welcome refugees, we live out what Jesus has called us to do in Matthew 25 – “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home… ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’” When we help resettle a family, we provide safety, hope and well-being to individuals and families in our community.
