Sanctuary outreach during Advent

December also marks the second Advent season and Christmas that both Rosa Sabido and Araceli Velasquez will spend in sanctuary. Rosa is living in sanctuary at Mancos United Methodist Church in Mancos, Colorado. Araceli is living in sanctuary with her family in Denver at Park Hill United Methodist Church and Temple Micah. 

We invite you to take a few minutes this Advent to send them a note of appreciation, encouragement, and prayer. Both women are also being supported by a great network of people in their sanctuary communities. Because we are also thankful for these communities, we ask you to also send Christmas cards to Mancos UMC Santuary Task Force and holiday cards to Park Hill UMC and Temple Micah Sanctuary Task Force (as the latter is both Christian and Jewish).

More information about where to send notes can be found below, as well as information about Rosa and Araceli's respective stories. Please continue to pray for and share the stories of these two powerful women.
