Pastor’s Note

Announcing the Completion of the Afghan Relocation Project

Thanks to your generous support, our church has furnished homes for three families that have recently immigrated from Afghanistan! In this effort, we have partnered with The Church of Reconciliation in Chapel Hill and The Local
Church, a United Methodist congregation in Pittsboro.

I would particularly like to express my gratitude to Bruce Raymond who has been a fantastic leader in organizing our efforts.

We have some remaining funds that will be donated to Church World Services, the organization that has helped to relocate the Afghan families. All remaining furniture items will be given to Love Chatham, a nonprofit in Siler
City that helps people in need right here in Chatham County.

Chapel in the Pines continues to work with both Love Chatham and the Farm at Penny Lane to help the needs of the unsheltered in our community. In the coming weeks and months, there will be more opportunities to give as well as volunteer.

Thank you for living our faith: “For I was an immigrant, and you welcomed me…” (Matthew 25:35).

In hope,
