Immigration has become a very divisive and politically partisan issue in our current culture and the politics are complex. Yet, as followers of Jesus rooted in the Christian scriptures, we have a calling to welcome and show hospitality to the foreigner among us. The very word “hospitality”, commanded throughout the Bible, literally means “love of foreigners”. Our hope is that our community would both learn about and move toward the “foreigners” in our midst. Here are few simple way that you can do this:
- Detention Center Visits: Learn more about visiting immigrants and refugees at the ICE Detention Center contact Dave Neuhausel.
- Border Trip participation*: In order to promote a deeper learning experience with immigration, we have partnered with the Global Immersion Project and we will be offering two border trip experiences. One in the fall of 2019 (Nov. 16 – 18), and another in Jan/Feb 2020 (dates are being confirmed). For more information, click here.
