Legislation Workgroup

Our Legislation Workgroup, coordinated by Carol Urban, meets the first Wednesday of each month from 11 to 1 in room 202 of the First United Methodist Church of Downers Grove, 1032 W. Maple Ave., Downers Grove.  We have recently written to our legislators on the issue of immigration as well as encouraging our leaders to consider the cause of justice in all their work.  We have lively discussions about many peace issues as well as spending time in prayer and meditation because we realize the importance of nurturing and encouraging each other.
