The Presbyterian-New England Congregational Church (PNECC) of Saratoga Springs in committed to a comprehensive "Covenant of Welcome to Immigrants" that outlines a broad range of actions to support immigrant members of our local community, regardless of their immigration status, and to advocate for humane immigration policy in our nation.

Within the two denominations represented by our congregation, we are aligned with "Immigrant Welcoming Churches" in the United Church of Christ and "Sanctuary Churches" in the Presbyterian Church (USA).

The Social Concerns Committee has the charge of overseeing this mission through the work of a "Welcoming Immigrants" subcommittee. To volunteer to help out, to offer suggestions, or to ask questions, you may email the Social Concerns Committee at  or phone the church office at 518-584-6091

Bienvenida a los inmigrantes

La Iglesia Presbiteriana-New England Congregacional (PNECC) de Saratoga Springs se ha comprometido a una amplia “Pacto de bienvenida a los inmigrantes” que describe una amplia gama de acciones de apoyo a los miembros inmigrantes de nuestra comunidad local, independientemente de su situación migratorio, y abogar por la política migratoria humana en nuestra nación.

Dentro de las dos denominaciones representadas por nuestra congregación, estamos alineados con “Iglesias de Bienvenida a Inmigrantes” en la Iglesia Unida de Cristo y “Iglesias Santuarios” en la Iglesia Presbiteriana (EUA).

El Comité de Asuntos Sociales tiene el cargo de supervisar esta misión a través del trabajo de un subcomité “acogida de los inmigrantes”.
