May 6 & 7: Welcoming the Stranger – Twin Cities & Rochester

Welcoming the Stranger – Twin Cities & Rochester

Thinking Biblically About Immigration

The immigration issue is complicated. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable.

Join us for a free and informative seminar with our partners at World Relief, Matthew Soerens and Liz Dong.

The presenters will encourage us to think Biblically about immigration while sharing personal stories and experiences, along with thoughtful policy analysis and facts. Ultimately they point toward immigration reform that is compassionate, sensible, and just, all while encouraging the church to offer welcome and friendship to our new neighbors.

This seminar includes stories, facts about immigration, our Biblical call to respond, and Q&A.

300 people joined us for this event last summer. Don’t miss this informative and helpful seminar with our partners from World Relief!
