Major Outreach Project Exploration

Monday, December 11, 2017, 7 pm

There have been exciting initial conversations this fall about the possibility of our congregation embarking on a major community outreach project in the next few years. Having completed our Forward in Faith Campaigns and retired our building debt, we have the opportunity to offer a major gift to our community, as we did in the past in the purchase of the Robinson House for low income housing through Open Doors and the Eleanor House as a women and family shelter through Housing Resources, Inc.  At our upcoming Church Conference, Pastor Steve will request approval for forming a Major Community Outreach Project Committee, which will invite the congregation to consider raising upwards of a million dollars to fund a major community outreach. Concurrently, the committee will seek to identify the community ministry where these funds can best be invested.  Join us on Monday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. as we talk and pray about this significant opportunity.
