The Kirkwood UCC Church Council voted at its October 10, 2017, meeting to adopt the Declaration of Sacred Resistance drafted by members of St. Louis area churches to oppose the aggressive and indiscriminate use of force against undocumented immigrants in our community. This was an important step in our progress toward becoming an Immigrant Welcoming church, as United Church of Christ congregations have been encouraged to do by the Thirty-First General Synod.

At its annual meeting on November 19,2017, the congregation of KUCC voted unanimously to adopt the following Immigrant Welcoming Statement, expressing our belief that ALL are welcome in our midst and in the Shalom of God’s kin-dom.
