Asylum Seekers

LOVING THE OTHER

We believe Jesus has called us to Love the Other. This includes asylum seekers who are coming to our Southern border. In an effort to support this vulnerable population, Central is stepping in to provide warm food, warm clothing and a warm bed until these asylees can transition on to their next destination. It's about people, not politics. It's about compassion, not campaigns.
