Outreach

Yesterday, I sat in on the outreach "committee" meeting.

We, as a church, are trying to be more intentional on outreach and ways that we can make a difference in the lives of those that we are in contact with and those that are hurting.

I am looking forward to the work that we may do and really excited with the possibilities of teaming up with community organizations already doing work - no need to "re-invent" the wheel.

Some of the agencies that we will be teaming up with will be the following:

- Interfaith Housing
- Salvation Army
- Children Services
- Free Medical Clinic
- People 2 People
- Pregnancy Care Center
- and .......

There are many things that these organizations are doing and doing well. Over time, I will share with you what they are doing and what we are doing to help them.

Yesterday, after the meeting, I went down to visit the Interfaith Housing office and the Salvation Army. It got me a little excited.

Hopefully, we can aim some of our ministries toward making a big difference in our community and county.

More later .....
