Episcopal Migration Ministries

Episcopal Migration Ministries: Educational Resources

Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) welcome newcomers, educates communities, and advocates for humane immigration policies that respect the dignity and worth of every human being. One of the ways EMM builds welcoming communities is through educating and empowering individuals to become more engaged in migration ministry.

EMM provides resources, webinars, educational materials, and opportunities for those eager to learn more or get involved in migration ministry. Visit and take advantage of the following resources:

  • Hometown Podcast – In its sixth season, Hometown features interviews with refugees and asylum seekers, individuals and congregations engaged in the work of welcome, experts, advocates, authors, and more.
  • Book Discussion Kits – EMM provides book discussion kits to empower local congregations to learn more about immigrant individuals and communities. These kits are rich in resources and questions to get your discussion going.
  • Study & Worship – EMM offers seasonal liturgy resources for Advent, Epiphany, Lent, and World Refugee Day.
  • Refugee Sunday Toolkit – This comprehensive toolkit guides congregations through the process of planning and hosting a Refugee Sunday.
  • Supporting Asylum Seekers Toolkit – This toolkit provides guidance and resources for congregations who want to support asylum seekers and welcome their newest neighbors.
  • Weekly News Digest and Monthly Newsletter – Sign up to receive a weekly immigration news digest and monthly EMM Friends & Supporters Newsletter.
"In the name of these refugees, aid all refugees through interest, friendship, gifts." This poster was part of the initial wartime effort that eventually resulted in Episcopal Migration Ministries and Episcopal Relief and Development.

Sermons That Work from the Episcopal Church

Sermons That Work

For more than 20 years, Sermons That Work, a ministry of The Episcopal Church’s Office of Communication, has provided free sermons, Bible studies, bulletin inserts, and other resources that speak to congregations across the Church. Our writers and readers come from numerous and varied backgrounds, and the resources we provide are used in small house churches, sprawling cathedrals, and everything between.

The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, reaching out to the world.

Church of the Redeemer

Church of the Redeemer: Worshiping God, living in community, and reaching out to the world around us. We are an Episcopal Church serving north King County and south Snohomish County, Washington. As you travel your road, go with friends walking the way of Jesus at Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. The campus is a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside. And we managed to hide a large building on the side of a hill that is not easily seen from the street.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
