Immigration Work Group
Independent Presbyterian Church has an Immigration Work Group (IWG) made up of members of the congregation and staff of Community Ministries.
“In the light of our understanding of Holy Scripture, we find ourselves called by Christ to facilitate services and to give emotional support to recent immigrants in our community through compassion, advocacy, and participation. We also feel called to educate our congregation and our community about immigration issues that face us all.”
Mission statement of IWG adopted June 24, 2007
