Faith in Action has been a part of our church fabric. Over the last five years, we have provided an opportunity to get to know some wonderful 501 c3 Organizations that one might otherwise not be aware of. We have some members who have developed and deepened their relationship with those organizations such as Iowa Justice for our Neighbors and Al Exito. We have assisted in providing early structure and opportunities with and for Family Promise, which is now a strong part of our church life. On average we as a congregation have donated $2,500 to $3,000 to each partnership. Now, is an opportunity for you to be part of this proud tradition.
Currently, the three members of Faith of Action after serving those 5 years are looking to step away after this partnership year which ends on August 31, 2020. The question remains if Faith in Action will continue. That is up to you!
Our next meeting is Monday November 28th, 2019 at 6:30 pm in the Stonewall Conference Room. We won’t be meeting in December. Please feel free to sit in and get a sense of what we do and processes that have been created to decide if this speaks to you. It is important that we have a new team in the wings before the February 2020 meeting so these folks can be a part of the application process that begins in March and ends in May. If that doesn’t occur, we won’t be opening the application process for 2020-2021.
Please give it some thought. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to Katie Allen. I would be happy to answer your questions and talk with you with no obligation
