Welcoming the Stranger: Justice, Compassion & Truth in the Immigration Debate
Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. Voices on all sides argue strongly for action and change. Christians find themselves torn between the desire to uphold laws and the call to minister to the vulnerable. In this book World Relief staffers Matthew Soerens and Jenny Hwang move beyond the rhetoric to offer a Christian response to immigration. They put a human face on the issue and tell stories of immigrants' experiences in and out of the system. With careful historical understanding and thoughtful policy analysis, they debunk myths and misconceptions about immigration and show the limitations of the current immigration system. Ultimately they point toward immigration reform that is compassionate, sensible and just, as they offer concrete ways for you and your church to welcome and minister to your immigrant neighbors.
 
Come ready to discuss the book and what the authors share. We will share what internal conversations we had with the book. This is about seeking understanding within the debate not having a debate.
 
The book can be purchased through Amazon 
 
 
Hope Haitian Choir
August 11th - 7:00 p.m.
South Church

This non-traditional choir, made up of fifteen young people, ranging in age from 7 -17, are touring the eastern US.  They come sharing their joy in a variety of venues and churches.  Their exceptional voices combined with energized dancing effectively communicate a message of hope.  Though many of these young people come from very difficult circumstances in their home country of Haiti, they demonstrate a buoyant spirit which finds its source in their genuine faith. 
 
You are invited to be a part of their special experience as they travel and share in our country, knowing that it will prove to be a blessing to you!

There is no fee, but an offering will be taken to help with the choir costs as well as fund projects in Haiti.  CDs and other items will be sold as well.  For more information  check out the choir and ministry website
