In line with the Bible’s teaching that “The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.” (Leviticus 19:34) and moved by the beautiful heavenly picture of “no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb” (Revelation 7:9), HillSong is sponsoring a seminar series on community life and resources for the immigrant population and people of international backgrounds living in the area.
The purpose of these seminar series is to provide information and resources on American life and culture to the immigrant community, so as to improve equal access to resources for the immigrant population and help immigrants better integrate to American life. It’s also a missional outreach attempt from the church, showing our love of God and love to our neighbors.
Speakers from all walks of life and various disciplines will talk about their work, life, and faith. Currently, we are able to provide simultaneous translation from English to Chinese at the seminars, so that the Chinese audience can be immersed in a bilingual environment and get the messages to their best understanding.
The seminar series will be held at HillSong Church, every Sunday morning, from 9:30-10:45 a.m. All are welcome!
For information of recent seminars, please see the posters or call 919-945-6780.
