People on the Move: A Missions Conference

This weekend event will help us better understand the global migration going on around the world (and around us!) and the current refugee and immigrant crisis. We'll explore what it feels like to be a refugee or immigrant-- moving through what they may experience-- and turn to how we can get involved directly in our area, or outside our area, assisting internationals through acts of service and giving.
