Founded in 1978, Refugee Services of Texas (RST) is a social-service agency dedicated to providing assistance to refugees and other displaced persons fleeing persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group – as well as to the communities that welcome them. Refugee Services of Texas will be resettling 574 Afghans across Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Amarillo and Austin. We invite you to support this work with your prayers and giving. Your gifts, marked “RST”, may be left in the Offering basket as you leave the Sanctuary, made online, or mailed to the church office throughout the month of September. To donate online, select “Other Designated” from the drop-down menu and indicate “RST” in the memo section.
