903 - Immigration Team
The Immigration Team seeks to accompany immigrant brothers and sisters in our church and community as we attempt to share our lives in solidarity. We provide opportunities for the congregation to engage deeply with immigrants, and educational opportunities to learn more about their experience. Upcoming possibilities include immersion trips to the border, and locally, a movie series, and deeper engagement with host activities for asylum seekers as well as expanded advocacy. We are working to build a network of north end churches that are concerned about welcoming immigrants. Bring us your new ideas and energy!
