First United Methodist Church Tucson

Connecting with ALL people and growing with Jesus Christ 

People are rallying together to respond with love to a request for help from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office. ICE has asked for help with temporary housing and transportation for immigrant families. Most of the families are from Central America and   are in the United States as Refugee or Asylum immigrants. They have cleared background checks and customs. The coordinated response is called The Inn Project.

Some churches are providing safe temporary lodgings for families for approximately 5-24 hours and in some cases 2-3 days. The churches are also providing meals, hygiene and bedding necessities, warm clothing, and other miscellaneous travel needs. When  contact with the refugee’s extended family is secured, churches are coordinating transportation for the refugees to join their families.

As of February 1, Over  500 families have already been served at the two sites, and more are arriving each day. You can be part of the love expressed by responding in whatever way Jesus is calling you to act.

​​​​​First Churchis one of the oldest protestant congregations in Tucson. Our purpose is to make new disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  Things we think are important include:

  • Diversity in race, sex,  ethnicity, age , gender identity, economic position
  • Inclusiveness of students, staff, faculty, downtown residents.
  •  Extravagant Hospitality - All are welcome
  • Transformation of the world – one Sunday at a time
