OUR MISSION PROGRAM—WORKING IN BG AND BEYOND
Migrant Camp Visit – The church visit to the Bloomdale Migrant Camp will be on Sunday July 22nd, from 6:00-8:00 pm. We’ll take a wide variety of useful work clothing to these special seasonal neighbors, along with food both to store, games for children and pizza to enjoy on the spot in a little fiesta. We invite all in our church to plan to attend the annual event that is so mutually uplifting.
This visit is our opportunity to welcome, get to know and give thanks to the migrants from Guatemala, Mexico, and other Latin American countries for harvesting the food that lands on our tables. Some of the migrants speak English, and we’ll also have translators on hand (thank you, La Conexion!).
At this point we are collecting the following items for the migrants through the Deacons’ Shop – you may drop them off in front of the office at any time:
Working clothes: jeans, tennis shoes, socks, long-sleeved shirts. Smaller adult/teen sizes are best,
Toys for children and babies
As we learn of other needs, we will post them on our church email and in our Sunday bulletins
