Monthly Mission Focus

Each month we focus our attention on one of our mission partners.

Interfaith Welcome Coalition

The Interfaith Welcome Coalition (IWC) is a faith-based movement meeting the changing needs of asylum seekers, refugees and at-risk immigrants in collaboration with others.

The Interfaith Welcome Coalition Outreach Programs are supported by & supplement the other outreach programs they run. The outreach programs provide a warm, comforting welcome and invaluable resources to migrants who have escaped unimaginable dangers in their homeland and have been released from American detention centers.

•Respond to the needs as they present themselves and as they change.•Provide basic support to people on their journey.•Educate and advocate to change the systems that impact immigrants.•Pray in community.•Currently help many asylum seekers.

We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world and have a responsibility to love and care for our neighbors.
