Immigration Task Force

About Us

Approximately 850,000 immigrants enter the United States without permission every year. America benefits and prospers because of their labor; yet denies many of them basic rights like fair wages, health benefits, the opportunity to be with their families, and social services. As Christians and United Methodists, we are called to love the stranger in our midst and to treat that stranger as we would our own family. We must be a church that welcomes the foreigners into our cities, our towns, our neighborhoods, our churches, our homes. 

Our Focus Areas are:

  • Engaging and Resourcing our Local Churches
  • Getting our Local Churches excited and active
  • Sanctuary Churches
  • Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON)
  • Refugees
  • Global Migration
  • Advocacy
  • Legal Clinics
  • Document Preparation
  • Know Your Rights
  • Citizenship
  • DACA
