Lenten Offering

Until Sun Apr 9

From March 20 to 25, 2023, 10 members of the Northern Illinois Conference including six members from CUMC will be visiting the southern border in Arizona and Mexico to get a first-hand view of the situation there with immigration. The team will be hosted by the Border Community Alliance, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bridging the border and fostering community through education, collaboration, and cultural exchange. You may learn more about BCA on their website here.

Each summer, BCA receives college students as interns from Arizona and other states. The cost to sponsor one student internship is $5,000 which includes all costs. BCA is in need of sponsorship for student interns. During Lent, the mission committee would like to ask you to consider an extra donation to sponsor a college student who will spend the whole summer helping migrants.
