Our Lord placed an open door before the Arabic Church of Sacramento to reach out to the Arabic and Muslim refugees who came from the uttermost part of the world and settled in our neighborhoods. In 2006, the church launched the Arab-American Learning Center (AALC) to serve and support the refugee community. We have become their new home in the new land. The center has ministries such as: Refugee Support Services, Women ESL Classes, "Seek the Truth" Discipleship Class, Ladies Tea, Donation Day, Farm/Garden Days, Young Adult Ministry, and Annual outreach events. We are excited to announce that in 2021, we will be opening Living Water Academy, the first Arabic/English Christian preschool in the country. These refugees are the brokenhearted, the captives, and the oppressed. The purpose of these ministries is to build bridges into the local refugee community by meeting practical needs and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
Paul & Beth Rogers were married in June 2020 and now serve the Arabic Church as leaders of the young adult group and Sunday English worship. They also serve the AALC in refugee support and events. Paul is the project manager for the repair work on the new ministry campus in Sacramento, and Beth is assisting with the start up of the preschool.
