Sudanese Services
Alaska Sudanese Community Church
 
Members of Anchorage's Sudanese community gather weekly for worship at First Presbyterian Church.
 
Several years ago, First Presbyterian began nurturing and encouraging Sudanese immigrants to Anchorage. This group recently formed the Alaska Sudanese Community Church.
 
Many members of this fellowship are war refugees from southern Sudan. The civil war in southern Sudanese raged on for the better part of 50 years and officially ended in 2005. As early as the 1990s, thousands were placed in the U.S. mainly in the Midwest. In the last few years, many have come to Anchorage to build a community.
