Event description

Description

To Our Sisters and Brothers in Christ…
Many of us have been diligently discerning how we might better understand the complex issues of immigration in our country. And many of us also seek to find ways in which we can make a positive impact in the lives of immigrants and to begin to build relationships with immigrants in our Presbytery. As Presbyterians we have a longstanding legacy of advocating on behalf of immigrants. Today Presbyterians continue working locally as well as nationally to ensure that immigration policy is just and consistent with Christian principles and that individual immigrants are received with dignity and hospitality.

Because the subject of immigration invokes an emotional response and since immigration law is complex, the task ofadvocacy in relation to immigration can seem too big for any one person or even one congregation to engage. The Coordinating Council of Whitewater Valley Presbytery would like to provide a way for individuals and for congregations to explore how God might be calling them to respond to this complex issue.

Sunday, September 30 is the Sunday for the Celebration of the Gifts of New Immigrants on the church calendar, we invite you to join us that evening at “Help Me Understand: Conversations about Immigration”.

This event will be hosted by Iglesia Nueva Creación at John Knox Presbyterian Church (3000 N. High School Road, Indianapolis, IN 46224).

We encourage you to share this important time with fellow Presbyterians. We encourage you to invite your congregations and your friends to attend.
