Burlington POWIR

Afghan refugee family

POWIR stands for Partners Organized to Welcome Immigrants and Refugees. Spearheaded by St. Veronica Parish, the group works with Burlington civic and religious organizations to locate housing for Afghan refugees, assisting them in establishing a home and navigating a new life in Burlington.

Thanks to all who donated generously to to our congregation’s contribution to POWIR to provide rent money for the two Afghan refugees resettled in our area. We exceeded our goal of $800 (1 month’s rent for one person) and raised a total of $925 toward rent expenses!

Text: Presbyterians Affirm Black Lives Matter

Racism victimizes many people but has a unique impact on African Americans. Given the forms anti-Black racism has taken historically and currently, we state clearly: GOD LOVES BLACKNESS. This truth has been denied by too many for too long. We align with love and not hate; we reject racism and proclaim that God delights in Black lives.

Jesus Calls Us

Jesus calls us to care for creation.

This 3‑minute video encourages creation care, amidst climate change. We can make a difference and answer the call of Matthew 25 to care for the least of these. Learn more about our call to act as earth’s caretakers:

Singing the
Matthew 25 Vision

Our congregation accepted the invitation of Matthew 25:31-46 to be the hands and feet of Jesus, serving people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned or poor. That vision is set to music in the hymn, “Jesus Be With Us,” with text and tune by the Rev. Dr. David Gambrell, PCUSA Office of Theology and Worship, with singing and music arrangement by Phillip Morgan, Central Presbyterian Church, Louisville, KY.

The author/composer and arranger/performer grant permission for use of the hymn and recording in worship, online or otherwise. For other uses, please consult the copyright holders.

We pay respect to the Massachusett elders past and present. We acknowledge, and are called to reckon with, the truth of the history of violence perpetrated by settlers and colonists against indigenous peoples. We commit to uncovering that truth and seeking reconciliation.
