Event Description

Every week, Lifetree Café-Marion gathers friendly people to experience the intriguing stories of life around us. Stories about the big (and little) stuff that shapes our lives. Family. Friends. Fears. Busy-ness. Balance. Money. Materialism. Health. Peace. Purpose.

Lifetree Café is a place where people of all faiths and backgrounds gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting. We meet every Friday at noon for one hour in the café at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Marion at 3500 29th Ave. 

The program, titled “Kids Without a Country: An Illegal Immigrant’s Story,” features the filmed story of Reyna Grande, who crossed the border with her family illegally when she was 9 years old.

The Lifetree program explores the challenges facing immigration reform, including issues surrounding children of illegal immigrants.

 Grande, now a teacher and author, describes the border crossing and her subsequent life as an undocumented alien. She’s the author of The Distance Between Us.

Please join us! All are welcome!
