God loves beyond borders.

In the United Church of Christ we are called to an extravagant welcome of all God's children, no matter who they are or where they are on life's journey. At a time when the politics of fear and hate are overwhelming airwaves, people of faith are called to respond with love. Together we are working to build bridges, not walls.

Register your congregation today!

Please come and join the October 10-11 Border Convergence in Nogales, Arizona/Sonora, at the U.S./Mexico border. Together UCC congregations will join the School of Americas watch immigrants rights groups and interfaith partners to demand justice to address root causes of immigration, justice at the border, and justice for immigrants.

Download Flyer:  

The United Church of Christ Southwest Conference, UCC National Collaborative on Immigration and the UCC General Minister and President invite you to join!
The UCC is involved in the planning process and Rev. Dr. John Dorhauer will be present to participate in the interfaith service at the border. The Good Shepherd UCC (just 40 miles north of the border) has been involved in border justice issues for years and has ample experience hosting UCC congregations from across the country for border immersion experiences. If you would like to send representatives from your congregation, or an entire group, please register here. For questions please contact with Nathan Watts at wattsn1013@gmail.com who is Ministry Intern at the Good Shepherd UCC or Rev.
