We have the opportunity to respond to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our time by assisting an Afghan family as they begin a new life in the United States, while sharing the love of Jesus through both word and deed. Live out the story of the Good Samaritan as we respond to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of our time. As a sponsor church, we take primary responsibility for welcoming newcomers to Gwinnett County while providing initial support and resources as they integrate into their new community.
The Afghan Resettlement Program, launched by Samaritan’s Purse, is part of a larger emergency response to welcome Afghan refugees in the United States. This program allows church sponsors to be matched with an Afghan family or individual to welcome them and show them the love of Jesus. You can learn more about Samaritan’s Purse below.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
