Our church takes seriously the biblical injunction to “welcome the stranger.” We see it as a moral crisis related to our faith when political leadership demeans and destroys immigrant families. We give substantially to the local immigration service agency the Berkshire Immigrant Center. We assist individuals navigating the immigration process. We host events such as the showing of a movie “Salaam Neighbor” to raise public awareness of the plight of refugees. There are over 10,000 recent immigrants to Berkshire County, and there is much to do. We welcome all immigrants and all those who will join us in doing so.
