Neighbor’s Table

Mercy Ministries has been blessed to partner with Neighborhood Ministries, Arizona State University (ASU), and the SURGE Network to offer The Neighbor’s Table: Experiencing God’s Heart for the Immigrant. Neighbor’s Table is a unique experience for church members who are ready to experience God’s heart for the immigrant. Through sharing a meal and stories with an immigrant family, participants have the opportunity to consider welcoming (Matt 25:35) and loving (Lev. 19:34) those who are sojourning in the Phoenix metropolitan area. 

Our purpose is to: 

  • Help individuals better understand God’s own immigration story. 
  • Create empathy for the immigrant experience. 
  • Affirm our unity in Christ—citizen and immigrant.
  • Provide options for responding to the immigrant experience.
