Immigration Film Series 


https://www.facebook.com/events/375685439857558/





The Immigrant Justice group at Christ Church is hosting a Film Festival beginning in January thru February.  Festival del Cine Dignidad Latinoamericana will feature stories that center on the experiences of Latin American immigrants and refugees. Each evening will begin with soup and empanadas at 5 pm and the films, both documentaries and narratives, will start at 5:30 pm.  Please join us to learn more about our Latinx neighbors’ experiences in our pursuit of justice for all!



Festivus for the Best of Us !  Sanctuary Fundraiser

Friday, February 22 at 6:00 pm. 

This game night and fundraiser for our Sanctuary Fund supports all of our actions with immigrants. Please bring a dish that serves at least 4 (bigger if you want) from your identified country, as we are all from somewhere! For example, if your roots are Irish, you may want to bring Irish stew. From Germany? Spaetzle is delicious! It will be a fun mix whatever everyone brings. $5 at the door buys you a fun night, and the silent auction will have many awesome items to bid on! 
Dinner 6 pm 
Games all evening
Silent auction 8 pm
Stay as long as you want and you can bring your own game, puzzle, or cards if you wish. See you there!

Make A Difference Teams 
Everyone is invited to join a team that is working to “make a difference” in our community. Jesus continually taught to defend the weak and lift up the powerless. Therefore, we work for justice. What is justice? Fair and equal treatment in society, including access to basic needs. Working for justice goes beyond charity to change the systems that cause injustice. Each team is engaging in research on their topic, identifying needs in our church and community, working to educate the congregation, and creating and implementing actions that improve the situation.


​Teams decide how and how often to meet and may be home meetings, coffee shop meetings, phone meetings, online meetings, or discussion via email.
