Offering a welcoming church community to all people, wherever they may be on their journey of faith, celebrating the glory of God through worship, fellowship, and service.

Welcoming our Refugee Neighbors

Please join us for a virtual conversation on ways of welcoming refugees in our area. The session will be hosted by Rev. Dr. Ellen C. Clemot, Senior Pastor of PCCT, Clerk of PCCT Session Maury Gately, a volunteer with RAMP (Refugee Assistance Morris Partners), and Christ Church of Summit’s Associate Minister Rev. Julie Yarborough on ways of welcoming refugees in our area.

Dr. Clémot will speak about her forthcoming book, Discerning Welcome, scheduled for publication in 2022 with Cascade Books, which explores the debate on border walls, the laws confronting refugees, and the theology of welcome. Rev. Yarborough is a board member of a refugee resettlement group in Union county “One World One Love” working in partnership with the International Rescue Commission (“IRC”). Maury Gately will share his experiences in working with other PCCT congregants in helping refugee families legally resettle in Morris County. Understanding what it means to be a refugee, their legal status, and the ways we can help as
people of faith will all be part of this topical conversation.
