Family Care Plan
The Book of Order proclaims that great ends of the church are “the proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind; the shelter, nurture, and the spiritual fellowship of the children of God; the maintenance of divine worship; the preservation of the truth; the promotion of social righteousness; and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world.”
In many of our churches throughout the PCUSA, there are members, children of God, who live with great uncertainty everyday because of their immigration status in this country. These members need shelter, nurture and spiritual fellowship in special ways because of their immigration status in the United States. While churches may advocate for changes in the law that would alleviate some of these needs, churches can respond in unique more personal ways as the family of God.
