Worship resources for this week

Each week we give you links to virtual worship, a copy of the order of worship, and information about in-person and virtual activities. Resources for Sunday worship are usually updated on Saturday. Archive of past worship resources posts.

NOTE: If you are viewing this on your phone and cannot see the whole message below, turn on autorotate on your phone and turn the phone sideways to landscape mode, which should make it readable. We hope to fix this issue with the integration between our emails and the website.

    August Compassion Offering
    Community Immigration Law Center (CILC)

    The Community Immigration Legal Clinic (CILC) is a Madison-based nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to immigrants facing deportation, free legal clinics, and training and education on immigration issues for the community at large. CILC is housed at Christ Presbyterian Church, 944 East Gorham Street, in Madison. Wisconsin.

    CILC provides pro bono services for anyone who presents themselves at their door, asylum seekers, refugees, and people recently released from detention centers. In the past year, referrals to CILC have included people from the border, people from Afghanistan and, most recently, people from Ukraine. In the past two months, referrals for services have doubled.

    Funds from the compassion offering will fund an increase of staff for establishment of a pro-se clinic. The pro-se clinic will provide increased access to those seeking information about their rights, assistance in filling out required forms and asylum applications in their native language, and support navigating the immigration court system.

    You can make a donation by check, on the memo line, please write “compassion” and mail to ORUCC, 1501 Gilbert Road, Madison, WI 53711, or donate online at orucc.org. Click the brown button “Contribute” in the upper right of the home page.
