Upcoming Events

Screening of Harvest of Empire

June 24th

Immigration has become one of our nation’s biggest issues over the past several years. As people of faith, it is important that we take in as much information as possible, and reflect on such issues theologically to discern how God would have us respond. In this interest, the Social Justice Group is offering an opportunity to begin looking at immigration through the lens of history, learning from experts and our neighbors.



On June 24th we will be screening the highly-acclaimed documentary Harvest of Empire: the Untold Story of Latinos in America, a film which looks at the relationship between the US and our Latin American neighbors, and explores the causes of migration to the US (causes which you may find surprising). We will begin in the Adult Ed Room (18/20) at 6pm with a meal, followed by the film, and a discussion. We will be prepared to relocate to a bigger space if need be. We also want to make you aware that this film is not child friendly, as there are graphic scenes and images. We are working to secure child care so all that wish to may be able to attend. If child care is needed, please contact Pastor Eric at emoeller@stlucasucc.org, or call or text 928-607-6560.

If you plan to attend please let us know by signing up on the community board or register below. Thank you, and we hope you will join us!
