Justice & Witness Team sponsors  Sanctuary Events

Sanctuary Orientation for Skyline Church: May 24th from 5- 7 pm

In early Jan 2018, Skyline Community church declared itself to be a sanctuary congregation. The greatest community  “sanctuary” needs in Alameda County are for accompaniment teams.  Members do not need to be Spanish speaking and the commitment is only a few hours a month.

If you’d like to learn more, come and join us.  We will hear reflections from Miriam Noriega, a staff member of the Interfaith Movemeht for Human Integrity.  Miriam is a first generation immigrant, and an MDiv student at the Jesuit School of Theology at the Graduate Theological Union.   Also sharing is Mirtha Ninayauer, co chair of  SCC’s justice and witness team and co-founder of the Nueva Esperanza Preschool. 

5- 6 pm will be a presentation
6-7 pm will be a potluck dinner

Sanctuary: Caminando Hacia la Libertad is a 2-day convening that serves to strengthen and organize people of faith in our sanctuary work across California to respond in an increasingly dangerous climate for immigrant communities in 2018. Join us to learn tools and best practices to create a more prophetic path towards liberation, caminando hacia la libertad, where all can live with dignity and wholeness.
