SAVE THE DATE: Emerging Immigrant Communities event


July 19, 2013

An invitation to
ALL Emerging Immigrant Communities of Faith AND their Partner churches and all those with interest to know more about the emerging immigrant communities of faith in Iowa: 

The world is changing! We are blessed with the opportunity to engage in relationships with those who are new to our communities and often outside the walls of our existing churches. There’s a Spirit in the air bringing new and exciting inspiration to all of us here in Iowa. We see the results in the budding ministries of new immigrants – Burmese, Sudanese, Chu, Hispanic/Latino. God has blessed us with rich diversity!

The Steering Committee – composed of folks with a passion for partnering with our new immigrant brothers and sisters invites you to spend the day building relationships, exploring together best models and practices in cross-cultural and multi-lingual settings, defining partnerships, and considering the question ‘What does it mean to be a United Methodist in the context of growing diversity?’

Please mark your calendar for
November 16, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Camp Wesley Woods, Indianola, Iowa

All are invited who are interested in exploring this topic – existing church pastors and laity, immigrants who are participating in faith communities, AND everyone who is interested in building bridges with each other that will carry us into the future. Please bring your family and friends.

Wesley Woods’ staff will plan activities for the children.

Cost will be $15 per family and everyone is asked to bring a dish to share for our mid-day meal.
