Greyhound Bus Station Ministry: Welcome legal asylum-seekers (a joint ministry opportunity between Myers Park UMC and Myers Park Pres)

Important Update as of 8/1/19:

We're back and serving in a limited capacity at the bus station most Sunday evenings. For now, we are following the lead of Migrant Assistance Project, and offering backpacks pre-packed with a specific list of food and toiletry items from a spot on the sidewalk outside the bus station itself. Please be flexible as we work to best serve these asylum-seekers. If you have questions, please reach out to Janie Reynolds at [email protected], Sarah Gillespie at [email protected], or Sue Dulin at [email protected].

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Join us in a ministry of presence and hospitality here in Charlotte where we welcome families seeking legal asylum.  We will be offering love through food, beverages and travel activities.

The bus we are responsible for is scheduled to arrive each Sunday at 3:15pm, but traffic conditions mean it could be early or late. Some weeks we have many asylum-seekers arriving on the bus, and other weeks fewer. We appreciate your flexibilty at we serve in this capacity! We usually carpool from the Myers Park UMC/Pres churches to make the arrival process go as seamlessly as possible. 

If you have questions, email Janie Reynolds at [email protected], Sarah Gillespie at [email protected], or Sue Dulin at [email protected]
