Refugee Services

Throughout the church’s history, Good Shepherd United Church of Christ has provided sponsorship and support for refugees around the world. In 2016, GSUCC welcomed the Hamisi family of five to Cary from their native land of the Congo, providing furnishings, transportation and other ways to assimilate into American culture.

Through ChildFund International Good Shepherd UCC has been providing assistance with food, clothing, and school expenses for Yohannis, a teenaged boy in Ethiopia for over a decade. Some years find us participating in the local CROP Walk, sponsoring a Hunger Lunch to raise awareness of food shortages, and collecting Christmas toys and material goods for families in financial need around the world. We participate in all of the special mission offerings of the United Church of Christ to assist people in various ways around the world.
