Refugee Resettlement Ministry Team

To date over 500 people have been welcomed to Dane County.

You Can Help
Join other individuals and congregations by donating household goods and furniture to furnish an apartment for a newly arriving family. Giving your time and talents through cultural coaching/mentoring, language tutoring or serving on the coordination team also helps welcome the newcomers.

You can help offer hospitality in meaningful ways. Specifically, help is needed with:

  • Welcome Boxes
  • New arrivals at the Dane County Regional Airport
  • Becoming a literacy tutor or cultural mentor
  • Inviting refugees to a social event in your community

Have Yourself a Dairy Little Christmas!

Just one dairy cow can produce as many as three gallons of milk each day. It’s a reliable source of nutrition and income — the total package for a family in need. Your gift comes with a free, limited-edition card to help you give in honor of someone special. Give creative, memorable gifts this Christmas, and share God’s love in Christ with our neighbors in need.

Please note the synod office will be closed from December 24 through January 2 for Christmas and New Year’s.

What Matters will be on hiatus until January 8. Please call the synod office for pastoral emergencies for pastor-on-call contact information. A blessed Christmas to all of our congregations and partners from Bishop Thomas-Breitfeld and your synod staff!
