Congregation Votes to Become a Sanctuary Church

The members of Menifee United Church of Christ voted after its worship service today, August 27,  to become a sanctuary church. While the church does not have the facility to house undocumented immigrants, it will advocate for them. Senior Minister Bill Freeman says, “Our congregation voted to be a beacon of light in the sometimes dark debate over immigration.” Rev. Freeman adds, “We urge Congress and the President to support immigration reform so that our 11 million brothers and sisters from Mexico and other countries have a realistic path to citizenship.” Freeman recently asked the Menifee City Council to designate Menifee a sanctuary city. That is not expected to happen. About 10 people protested outside of Menifee UCC today, in opposition to Menifee becoming a sanctuary city and to Menifee UCC becoming a sanctuary church.

Menifee United Church of Christ conducts worship services Sundays at 11 AM at 26701 McCall Blvd in Menifee.
