Help Welcome Syrian Refugees

World Relief Durham volunteers at Blacknall are setting up apartments for an extended family of 10 refugees from Aleppo (four adults, six children). They are arriving Thursday, January 19, and we need your help to create a warm and welcoming home for them!

WAYS TO HELP

  • Donate gently used or new items for the apartment. Sign up here. (NOTE: There are separate lists for groceries, furniture, etc., that you can access through tabs across the bottom of the document.) Drop off small items during Young Adult sunday school in the Community Room. To give larger items, contact Abby Ampil.
  • Come to a work-assignment potluck this Sunday, Jan. 15, in the Fellowship Hall after the 2nd service. There is a lot to do to welcome the family next week, especially in setting up the apartment. If you would like to pitch in, join us! No prior World Relief experience required.
The volunteer team is grateful for any help! Thank you for your support.

What is Your Story Workshop

Stephanie Gehring Ladd, a Blacknall new member, artist and writer is offering the gift of a women’s workshop.

Stephanie writes,  “In novels and memoirs, a person’s life story often sounds like it showed up fully formed, with a plot and coherent themes and clear main characters. The conversion stories I heard growing up always sounded like they had a very clear before and after. My own life has often felt like a big jumble with no clear story, and lots of repeating loops. But the work of discovering that there is a story in the jumble is exciting and freeing. Join me to think about the many kinds of shapes stories can have, to consider the shape of your own story, and to share what you find with another person. All are welcome, whether you want to think through your own faith story for the first time, or whether you have been telling it for decades.”

Invite a friend, since story applies to everyone no matter what faith. Fee is $5 at the door. Contact: Margaret Frothingham.
