Immigrant Action Team Training

Saturday, April 20 from 9am-noon in the Gym

This is the follow-up training mentioned in Rev. Daniel Romero’s sermon and that day’s forum. 

ECMN and the Minnesota Council of Churches are inviting individual churches and denominations to join us in helping immigrant families, specifically those from Central and South America, who have survived harrowing journeys to find a better life in the U.S. and yet don’t qualify for the federal, state and county supports that refugees, asylees and humanitarian parolees have access to. We expect to have a formal invitation about this ministry ready soon (tentatively called What Would Whipple Do Now?).

In the meantime, join those from MCC and St. John’s Linden Hills (Rev. Daniel Romero, Archdeacon Rena Turnham, the Rev. Susan Moss, and the Rev. Rex McKee) who are prototyping this ministry for a training that will orient volunteers as to why these teams are being formed and provide the information and tools that SJE’s Action Team will need in their accompaniment of immigrant families. As you might imagine, every family will need food, clothing and shelter but beyond that, needs can differ greatly. Finally, once an Action Team is formed the Leadership Team will mentor them.

Registration is not required but appreciated. Sign up here!

Note: Attending the training does not obligate you to be on SJE’s Action Team; all levels of support are needed and this will be a great intro to how you can help in whatever way you can.

Local Indigenous Sacred Sites Pilgrimage

Saturday, May 4 from 2:30-6:30pm, with time for reflection to follow
Join the Creation Care team on a pilgrimage to local indigenous Sacred Sites to learn about Minnesota history from a Native perspective.  
Who should come on the tour? The stories told deal with historical trauma, so may not be appropriate for younger children. The whole tour is or can be made physically accessible for people of all mobility levels.
How do we get there? A bus will pick up pilgrims at St. John’s and take us to the sites together to allow for group discussion in between. It will return us to St. John’s afterwards so we can share a liturgical reflection.
