Border Migration Response

We are constantly seeking ways to be faithful in our response to the immigration and refugees coming to our area! 

The Methodist Border Friendship Commission, is a ministry of the El Valle District UMC and the Rio Texas Conference of the UMC. The Commission has been serving since 1999.  Over the years, the Commission has formed strong relationships with the churches, pastors and variety of partnering agencies and ministries serving various ministries including immigrants and refugees in the border area of the Rio Texas Conference and the Eastern Conference of the Methodist Church of Mexico and beyond. 

The Commission has formed a working Committee of this group to be given the responsibility to use designated funds as needed and serve as our link to the United Methodist response to immigration and refugee programs and ministries of these areas.
