Nearly a quarter of residents of the D.C. metro area were born in other countries. These neighbors of ours have fascinating stories, talents and abilities, and valuable perspectives to offer us. Many of these folks also have great needs, like friends, community, resources, legal aid, and a knowledge of the Gospel.
God has given his people clear call to love the stranger (Deut. 10:18-19; Psalm 146:9; Matt. 25:35), and Restoration has so many opportunities to do so. Last trimester, our small group focused on how we might live out this call, and this coming Tuesday, we want to continue that conversation.
We’ll be teaming up with the Love Arlington small group for a night of prayer to bring our desires and questions to God for he might lead us in this area. We’ll also be praying alongside our whole denomination, as God has also been prompting the broader community to live out this call more fully.
If you’re interested, please come! Here are the details:
When: Tuesday, March 4th, 7:30-9pm
Where: 5129 10th St North Arlington, VA 22201 (There is plenty of street parking)
A bonus: Shrove Tuesday-themed snacks
