Easter Offering Designation

The Deacons have designated Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates to receive the Easter Offering. There is an Easter Offering envelope in the giving envelopes for 2017. You may also designate a donation to the Easter Offering by writing “Easter Offering” in the Memo.

From LIA: Lighthouse Immigrant Advocates (LIA) is a not-for-profit law office that brings stability to West Michigan families and communities through legal services and advocacy. Families that are constantly in fear of deportation; families that lack access to quality, low-cost legal services; families that are unauthorized to work; and/or families are trapped in violent situations, struggle to maintain stability and economic security. Unstable families and families suffering from economic insecurity lead to instability in our communities, schools, and workplaces.

This is an issue that impacts everyone in our community: rich and poor, young and old, citizen and noncitizen. Founded in response to this need within one of our most vulnerable communities, LIA provides high quality immigration legal services. LIA also advocates through community education, internships and volunteer opportunities, and public awareness campaigns. These services work towards insuring family economic security, intact and unified family units, and detecting and preventing violence in our community.

LIA staff and board of directors are passionate about serving this community. Anyone, regardless of race, color, religion, creed, disability, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression, are welcome to seek and receive services at LIA. We value human life and dignity. We value social justice, and we value a strong and stable community.
