Speak Up for Immigrants: News from the First Church Sanctuary Working Group. First Church will host a free UCC workshop on immigration and refugee issues from 9:30 am -3:00 pm on April 20. It’s a great opportunity for anyone to get involved in the fight to protect immigrants’ rights. Guests can attend part or all of the workshop, and a free lunch is provided. UCC ministers from across the country and representatives from immigrant support groups will lead discussions on the political landscape, sanctuary churches, and ways that churches can engage to help our immigrant sisters and brothers. First Church declared it was a sanctuary congregation a year ago, and this is a great opportunity to put our words into action. You can register for the event at www.ucc.org/immigrantswelcome2018. We hope to see you there!
