Brooklyn United Methodist Church is having their United Women in Faith Sunday the 27th of August.  The guest pastor is Nancy Victorin-Vangerud.  She is a MN Hopeful Earthkeeper, and a Reconciling Pastor. 

The God who created us now calls us to participate in healing relationships between people and the earth, and between the peoples of the earth. How are you being called to work together to welcome a more just and sustainable world?

Come join the United Women in Faith at 9:00 Sunday August 27th to learn more. 



MN Council of Churches Refugee Services

offers assistance to persecuted people who come to Minnesota as refugees.  The MN UMC Conference is a key member of the MN Council of Churches and we are also the local affiliate for UMCOR’s work with refugees.  We work with persecuted people who come by invitation of the US Government to start new lives in the United States and offer a range of educational and ministry opportunities to local congregations to learn more about and assist new refugees.  Although refugees arrive filled with hope and possess vast life experience, they arrive with very few material belongings with which to begin life in the United States.

As part of our efforts to warmly welcome new arrivals to Minnesota, we set up apartments for new families before their arrival, but we need help to do so!  Attached is a list of supplies needed to supply a family of five with what they need to start life in Minnesota.  UMW groups at church and district levels could help to assemble welcome kits which will be delivered to new refugee familes.  There is even the opportunity to set up the apartment!  Since most refugee resettlement happens in the Twin Cities, this is a great opportunity for churches in Greater Minnesota to have a direct impact on the lives of newly arriving refugee families.

Thank you for sharing this information, and feel free to relay questions back to me.  I think that this would be a great and impactful way for UMW groups to get involved in a group activity!

In Peace,
