Sanctuary Church Update

Sr. Pastor David Kaden speaks at the press conference announcing First Congregational Church's Sanctuary Designation

On Sunday May 5, 2019, First Congregational Church of Ithaca voted to become a Sanctuary Church. Sanctuary Churches pledge to provide shelter if needed for under-documented immigrants with legal challenges to deportation already in process. The eight other member congregations of the Ithaca Sanctuary Alliance have committed to supporting FCCI in material, interpersonal and spiritual ways.

Becoming a sanctuary church is an affirmation of our faith and and an expression of extravagant welcome modeled on the principle of God’s unconditional grace offered to all.
