Exploring Migration: A Faith Journey
September 9 – November 4
This 8-week program, Exploring Migration: A Faith Journey, invites participants to formulate a personal response to the 21st-century reality of migration inspired by their Christian beliefs.
We will explore some of the central questions related to the reality of migration on a global level and in the U.S. context. The sessions provide historical, biblical, and theological perspectives and suggest ways participants can take action in their own context.
Session will be held Mondays September 9- November 4 from 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm at MPB in the RCIA room . Cost is $50 and registration is limited. Financial support available. For registration information and questions contact Ann Zimmer.

At Project C.U.R.E we will sort donated medical supplies that are delivered to more than 130 developing countries.
Project C.U.R.E. delivers 40-foot semi-trailer-sized cargo containers carrying medical donations to under-resourced hospitals, clinics and community health centers in developing countries. Project C.U.R.E. collaborates with community partners in each country to develop a high-level understanding of the scope of need. Their thorough, on-site assessment process ensures that every container delivered will meet the specific needs of the recipient hospital or clinic, equipping the medical staff with life-saving tools to improve diagnosis, treatment and care.
To volunteer and for more information, contact Mike Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Vigil at the Aurora GEO Detention Center
Hosted by AFSC & Coloradans For Immigrant Rights and Colorado People’s Alliance
Monday, August 5, 2019 at 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
3130 Oakland St, Aurora, CO 80010-1502
Supporters gather each quarter to stand together for our neighbors and our families and against detention and deportation.
The spirit of this vigil is to lift the stories and experience of real people struggling to overcome the extreme consequences of ensnarement in our immigration and criminal justice systems. All people are important to the fabric of our community and deserve our support. Our immigration system treats people cruelly and unfairly, both inside detention centers and through deportation that rips families and communities apart.
MPB Justice Matters Ministry is organizing a group to join in support. Meet at MPB at 5:00 pm and carpool leaves at 5:15 pm. We’ll gather along with members of our neighbors at First Plymouth to reflect on our experiences back at MPB after the vigil. Contact Ann if you’re interested in participating.
