On Wednesday, October 7th, more than fifty people from multiple towns, communities of faith, and perspectives gathered in worship, learning, and discernment to consider a local response to the unfolding European migrant crisis. It was a challenging and energizing gathering. And it is just the beginning.
Four teams are mobilizing to address the various facets of the crisis, including
- Organizing an immediate humanitarian response.
- Sponsoring one or more families who will be relocated to the U.S.
- Engaging the political dimensions of the crisis.
- Keeping up to date with news and sharing information.
If you would like to join one of these working groups, please sign up in the Jonathan Edwards room or contact Pastor Brent (413-298-3137 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
