We Choose Welcome Initiative
As part of the We Choose Welcome initiative, the Adult Education Committee will offer three discussions about how UPC will join the PC (USA) movement. During its February meeting, the Session engaged in a thoughtful discussion about how we at UPC can reach out with hospitality to the refugees in our community. One part of this initiative invites the congregation to join the ongoing discussion, each a stand-alone session, as we discern as a church family how to respond. Please join us.
