Holy Conversations on Immigration


In the coming weeks, two North Georgia Conference churches will host conversations on immigration. 

Story Sharing Tour: A Community Conversation on Immigration
Hampton UMC
August 14
7 pm

Talented college students are helping houses of worship across the U.S. have a good and healing conversation about the controversial topic of immigration. Hampton UMC has been selected as the first location to hold these sacred conversations, and the whole community is invited to pray, listen, and ask questions.

"O think holy conversations are desperately needed right now," said Rev. Jordan Thrasher, "and this is really one of the best ways to do it."

This is for anyone in the community who wants to come. It is from 7-9 pm on August 14 in our sanctuary. The event is sponsored by the UMC General Board of Church and Society. 

Immigrants in Our Backyard
Trinity UMC Dalton
September 7
10 am to 3 pm

Immigration is a huge part of our faith stories, and yet many of us in the church do not know enough about the theological, legal, and personal realities to know where to begin in ministry with our immigrant neighbors. Trinity UMC in Dalton will host an "Immigrants in Our Backyard" conference on Saturday, September 7, from 10 am to 3 pm. The event is organized by the North Georgia Conference's Undocumented Partnership Task Force.
