Human Relations Day January 2020

 

"The community provides the potential for nuturing human beings into the fullness of their humanity. We believe we have a responsiblity to innovate, sponsor,"The community provides the potential for nuturing human beings into the fullness of their humanity. We believe we have a responsiblity to innovate, sponsor, and evaluate new forms of community that will encourage development of the fullest potential in individuals." The United Methodist Social Principles (From The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church - 2016

Our offerings toward Human Relations Sunday are used to advance projects around the globe
that nuture individuals. People like:

* An immigrant teenager in Texas Poorest county, being recruited by a local gang
* A father struggling for sobriety in Little Rock, Arkansas
*An Oklahoma woman recently released from incarceration looking for work.

Over and over Jesus served people like this, embracing them. And that's what we want to
model. Human Relations Day is a Special Sunday that calls all of our churches to
participate in helping all God's children to realize their potential.

In Kenosha, our local community includes what happens inside Immanuel's walls and the
things the take place outside. As individuals and as a group, we support those who come
to Meals that Matter on Monday nights. The Shalom Center provides most of the food,
but our volunteers provide smiles, concern, and acceptance that raise the spirits of those we
serve. The clothing and toiletries that we give out show our non-judgmental love and caring.

Out side our walls there are: Cush taskforces, the Grace Welcome Center, Urban Outreach and
the veterans at the Dayton that need our energy and caring. If you feel the desire to help others,
please let your desire be known. We can help you find your ideal spot to serve and be blessed.
