Underwood Hills Church Extends Warm Hospitality

At Underwood Hills, we know that hospitality creates a space where strangers become friends.  We seek to create such a space in a variety of ways so that people can enjoy fellowship and community with one another.  Whether you are married, single, divorced or widowed - you will be warmly welcomed.

After worship services, we enjoy refreshments and conversation in the Commons.  This is a place and space to get to know one another.  Once a month, our congregation has lunch together following the worship service.  Eating together creates and renews friendships.

Come to Underwood Hills, where strangers become friends.

How Are Christian Citizens of the United States Called to Welcome the Foreigner?

Immigration in general, and immigration reform in particular are two issues frequently in the news.  Sometimes, we simply read the headlines, not capturing everything in an article.  Sometimes, we hear snippets of the news on TV or the radio.  Maybe we seen something about immigration on Facebook, which isn’t exactly a news source.  How do we know that we are getting helpful, accurate information, and more importantly, how are we as Christians to respond to the needs of immigrants?

To explore immigration from a faith perspective, we are offering a three-week class on immigration, beginning Sunday, June 3, at 4:00 pm.  The sessions are as follows:

  • Sunday, June 3:  Assumptions and Immigration Policy.  Almost everyone agrees that the current immigration system is not working and needs to be changed. This session seeks to provide an explanation of what is happening currently, including proposals for immigration reform.

  • Sunday, June 10: A Christian Perspective and Hospitality.  How does our Christian faith provide a value perspective that shapes our attitudes and responses about immigration? This session will present some of the ethical and religious views that are influencing public discussions.

  • Sunday, June 17: A Legal Perspective.  One or two lawyers from the Immigrant Legal Center (formerly Justice for Our Neighbors) will be present to share the facts about immigration in the U.S.

You are invited to attend this educational event.  Do you know someone who has concerns about immigration?  Please invite them to join you in attending these sessions.
