DISPLACED. OPPRESSED. ETERNAL IMMIGRANT.

These are just a few of the words used to describe God in the Immigrant’s Creed, which is read each Sunday at ECLC during Lent.  The truth of the words is shocking, and perhaps unsettling.  Come to our soup supper’s designated conversation table from 6-7pm to delve into these words and talk about how our faith calls us to engage in welcoming newcomers together.   All are invited to the Immigration conversation table this Wednesday the 18th and next Wednesday the 25th.

The Mission Team is focused on engaging our congregation in the pressing issue of immigration.  Through advocating for fair state policies, volunteering to welcome immigrants in our neighborhoods, learning about immigration reform, and praying for all God’s children, you are invited to respond to God’s call.  You are also invited to support the Lenten Offering, which lifts up ECLC’s ministry partners that support those experiencing forced migration: Lutheran World Relief and Lutheran World Federation.  To donate, put “Lenten Offering” on a check in the offering plate or go to www.eclc.org
