Friends make friends in Minnesota

Friends Community Church in Sturgeon Bay is reaching beyond the Mississippi River to make its impact felt by others. The Minneapolis Friends Meeting is a growing congregation thanks in part to an influx of refugees from war-torn Kenya. Friends Community Church Pastor Nancy Bontempo says The Religious Society of Friends, which is based in the Quaker tradition, is becoming one of the fastest-growing sects in Africa.

Bontempo says the Sturgeon Bay congregation is helping the Minneapolis Friends Meeting go through the paperwork needed to establish themselves and to help their refugee members assimilate and get on the path towards citizenship.
