Sanctuary/Immigrant Justice Team will help sponsor Guatemalan family

After some time of discernment and gathering information, the Sanctuary/Immigrant Justice Team has decided to move forward with steps toward sponsoring a Guatemalan family that is seeking asylum in the U.S. The straw poll the team conducted at a service in April showed that our UUCC congregation is strongly in favor of sponsorship, and several folks have very generously stepped forward with offers of help and even housing.

There are other Columbia community members who are highly supportive, and that includes people at Rock Bridge Christian Church, the other official sanctuary church in town.

The team feels very positive about these developments and will keep you up to date. For more information, email Allie Gassmann or Dave Gibbons.
