Better Together Refugee Sponsorship Initiative is an initiative of several area churches which launched in February, 2013 as a 6-week pastor rotation culminating in a Good Friday service which raised over $50,000 for Habitat for Humanity, with the goal of showing to the community and to ourselves that we are better, stronger, and more equipped to achieve our vision when we work together.
