Syrian Crisis [UPDATED]

By now you've heard the news. Millions of Syrian refugees are fleeing their home country for a safer place. Half of those are children.

The week leading into Labor Day weekend, we saw a story break with a picture -- a 3-year-old boy named Aylan who washed up on a Turkish shore. It sent shockwaves throughout the world and now we're asking, "What can we do?" We want to be a resource to you as you think through ways you can serve refugees overseas as well as refugees right here in our community.
