Dear Broadway Family,


As I have shared before, and as we all perhaps know- latest reports indicate that about 1,500 migrants have arrived to Chicago from Texas and more continue to arrive almost every day. There are indications that as many as 10,000 migrants could arrive in Chicago by the end of the calendar year. This means there is ongoing need for donations to help provide and welcome these persons/families.



Last time we made our donations of school supplies through our Mayor’s office. Recently I learned from our Northern Illinois Refugee Coordinator that World Relief needs donations specially of hygiene kits, gift cards and Ventra cards, among other things.


They are also looking for volunteers to help with transportation for these families  to their appointments (medical, legal, etc.).  if you can give some of your time for this work, please sign up here.


Friends, our God calls us to care for one another and support those less privileged than us. Remember, none of us can do everything, but every one of us can do something to make this world a better place, to help the needy, and keep our communities safer and welcoming spaces for all people, and let us not forget that whatever we do for anyone in need- we are doing it to a child of God, to the image of God, to God!



Be blessed, and I look forward to seeing you in church.
