But how do you keep a kite flying when it’s just you and you need to go do something else? You share it.

Reconciling Notes

Immigration 101: 

 Sunday, September 23, in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the 11:00AM service. Light lunch to be served.

An Overview of U.S. Immigration Law

Do you ever wonder about immigration laws?

What’s a visa, a green card, DACA?

Why immigrants don’t just apply for citizenship?

Would you like to have a better understanding of immigration rules in a non-political format?

 

Lunch will be followed by Just Neighbors presenting an easy to understand overview of the ins and outs of our country’s very complex immigration system.

 

Regardless of your political views, this presentation will focus on facts about who is eligible for the various types of legal status in the U.S. and what the various types mean. There will be time for Q&A. 

 

No RSVP necessary, just come! For more information contact Mark Elder markuselder@gmail.com.

 

 

Co-hosted by FUMC’s Reconciling Ministry Team

and the Church in Society Team.
