What Breaks God’s Heart: Immigration

The history of Presbyterians advocating on behalf of immigrants is as long as the history of the United States.  Today Presbyterians continue this legacy by working locally as well nationally to join the struggle to ensure immigration policy is more just and consistent with Christian principles.

Amanda Craft, Manager for Advocacy, Office of Immigration Issues, PCUSA will join us on Monday, September 10 for a conversation with interested people on ways their church can advocate and support immigrants in our region.

Everyone is welcome to participate in
