Immigration Ministry Team

Education, Advocacy and Support for Immigrant Families

At FUMC Omaha, we believe Compassion is for all, and that includes our immigrant and refugee brothers and sisters. We advocate, support, and provide education for immigrant and refugee families working in partnership with Lutheran Family Services. This team organized our congregation to help welcome and support two refugee families through Lutheran Family Services in 2016. Members continue to offer relationships, support, and advocate for the families.
