The topic of immigration, refugees, and any other foreign born residents living and working in our own neighborhoods has been an important issue the past several months. What are the facts? How are we in the Western Church to respond?
Our next Engage is excited to welcome Matthew Soerens, U.S. Church Training Specialist for World Relief and co-author of Welcoming the Stranger. Matthew assists churches in understanding the complexities of immigration and refugee issues from a biblical perspective. We will also have representatives from some other local organizations that serve these communities giving their experiences and practical steps for you to take in beginning conversations with internationals who are right here in our backyard.
Here are the details:
Date: Saturday, March 5
Time: Breakfast served at 8:00 AM, Training from 8:30-11:30am
Location: St. Charles Campus, in the Hub Theater
