Sponsor a Saturday meal for people at the border – Phoenix UCC
First Church United Church of Christ in Phoenix, Arizona continues to partner with Refugee Aid at the Welcome Center which is largely operated by the International Rescue Committee. When this began in March 2021, we were providing food for 50 people. There has been an increase in the number of people and most Saturdays we are catering for 125+ guests. Since mid-July, we provide pizza for 50 people on Sundays, too. During the month of July 2021, the Welcome Center hosted 2000 guests. We anticipate the need for a warm welcoming meal of hospitality will continue. Email the Phoenix UCC pastor for sponsorship info.
I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. Matthew 25:35
