A Christian Response to Immigration
Our Christian faith is rooted in the stories of ancient immigrants, from Abraham and Sarah to Jesus himself. Our country is a nation of immigrants comprised of women and men from all countries, all economic and social classes, and all walks of life. Yet surprisingly – or perhaps not – immigration has become a vexing and divisive issue across our land and across our world. What does the Bible say about immigration? How should followers of Jesus who call us to “welcome the stranger” respond to today’s immigration debate? What should we know to inform our response? Our five-week series invites us to peer through the lens of our faith at matters like the Bible and immigration; the terminology of immigration; the phenomenon of global migration; our country’s immigration legal system; immigrant detention; legalizing one’s status; refugee and asylum petitions; DACA and young immigrants; and others. Led by Pastor Bob with special guests Sue and Greg Smith, CBF and BGAV Field Personnel. Meets in room MPR 2.
We Make the Road by Walking
Join a group of ladies as they walk together through the major themes of the Bible. This study offers everything you need to explore what a difference an honest, living, growing faith can make in our world today. It also puts tools in your hands to create a life-changing learning community. Meets in room 125
Does the week seem to always get ahead of you? Is it hard to find time for quiet; to just rest and be refreshed by God’s Spirit? In this experience, you are invited into quiet and a place to refocus and reflect on God’s presence in your life. Follow guided activities or just be. This space is for you and God. Meets in room 121.
