Immigration & Refugee Advocacy

Imagine living in a foreign country. The culture is different, the food is different, and the language is different. Simple tasks like filling out a normal form for your child to go to school can be daunting and nearly impossible. “Simple” tasks that natives find easy become difficult tasks for immigrants. Being an immigrant or refugee isn’t easy, and figuring out life in a foreign country alone is even harder, but it doesn’t have to be. Having a native walk with you and talk you through those “simple” tasks can make living in a different country enjoyable and even life-giving. God said to His people in Exodus 22:21 “...Remember, you yourselves were once foreigners in the land of Egypt.” Here are some tangible ways to help immigrants in our community:

Lincoln Community Center

Help adults learn English by assisting in Clarice Esslinger's class.

South Sudanese Church at Crossview

Attend a Sunday afternoon worship service with the South Sudanese Congregation that meets in our church.
