ASUMC Youth and Young Adult Trip to Robeson County
The Youth and Young Adults, accompanied by Pastor Robin Hynicka and Marge Donnelly, returned safely from their Mission Trip to North Carolina. For the last eight years, ASUMC Youth have traveled to Lumberton and Pembroke NC to work alongside local leaders on various improvement projects. The picture above shows our group meeting for Dinner at the local UMC church after a long day with the UM Disaster Response. This year they helped restore a home of an elderly couple whose house was destroyed in last year’s Hurricane Matthew and the flooding that ensued. ASUMC Youth are so close to this NC community they ask for your help. Many homes are still in need of repair in this impoverished area. Let’s show our youth that we support their efforts by giving to the relief fund. Pastor Robin has set a stretch goal of $8,000; we have just over $5,800 so far. Please use the special offering envelope inserted in the bulletin or give online on our web page. Checks should be made out to Arch Street UMC with the words Flood Relief on the memo line. Thank you for your generosity.
Arch Street UMC’s Sanctuary ministry for Javier
In March, 2004, Javier Flores Garcia, was the victim of a horrific crime when two men mistook him for somebody else. They proceeded to stab him multiple times and left him for dead. After his miraculous recovery he aided local police in the resulting investigation, which led to the capture of the men who attacked him. This unfortunate incident made Javier eligible for what is known as a U-Visa, a type of immigration relief for immigrants who are victims of crimes in the U.S. and collaborate with police. Unfortunately, U.S. immigration services refuses to approve his U-Visa. It has been pending for nearly two years.
While building community together, Javier, his family, and the Arch Street team continue to advocate for a just process with his immigration case. The past 8 months has been one of love, learning and transformation for all who are connected to this community.
If possible please help us by designating your gift to “Sanctuary.”
