The May meeting of the Rio Texas Chapter of the Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) will take place Thursday, May 14, at Saint John’s UMC, Austin. The program will focus on the Austin Region Justice for Our Neighbors (ARJFON) clinic, which is part of a national United Methodist network of legal clinics based in United Methodist churches around the country. Kevin Reed, who serves as the chair of the ARJFON board, will share the journey that the Austin program has been on since its beginning in 2012.
The goal of the JFON clinics is to provide hospitality and compassion to low-income immigrants through immigration legal services, advocacy, and education. The Austin clinic is hosted on the last Saturday of each month at Servant Church, and the legal staff is housed at Parker Lane UMC in south Austin.
Please join us to learn about this much-needed ministry. Snacks and mingling begin at 6:30p; the program will start at 7p. Hope to see you there!
