Immigration Ministries

‘Cursed is anyone who withholds justice from the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow.’ Then all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’
Deuteronomy 27:19
As a congregation made up of people from 18 different nations, we feel particularly called to stand beside immigrants and advocate for merciful immigration policies that reflect God's grace and wide welcome. Some of our advocacy work has been very public and garnered national attention; other ministries are much more quiet and go unnoticed by most. We partner with Sanctuary DMV, Congregation Action Network, and the United Methodist Church's General Board of Church and Society. Taking part in this ministry could look like showing up for a vigil; providing 1-1 supportive accompaniment to someone who has to report to ICE check-ins; writing letters; donating money for legal support for someone in our congregation; and so much more.
If you'd like to get involved, we'd love to have you! Please fill out this interest form.
