TRUST Youth Mini Lock-in

The Evangelical Lutheran Church of America has declared the church to be a sanctuary for refugees.  Jim and Karen McConkey from Mayflower Church (United Church of Christ) shared their personal experiences with asylum seekers sponsored by their church with the Missionary Circle at their October 2 meeting.  People interested in learning more and moving toward an understanding of 'what this means' for us are welcome to reach out to a Circle member for more on this conversation. Vicky Ercolani hosted the meeting; JoAnn Christopherson is Circle Chair.
