This Wednesday members of King's Chapel met to envision what our social justice outreach should look like over the next three years.
This is the second of three session that will build upon work already undertaken by the Community Action Committee, who worked diligently over the past two years to narrow down our partnerships from twelve to six. Now the entire congregation is invited to look at the work in which the church is already engaged, and the organizations with which we are already partnered. The congregation will decide which of these partners we would like to deepen our relationship with and focus on over the next three-year period.
Choosing strategic partners for our social justice outreach will allow us to engage more deeply with the work: it is our hope that these partnerships will engage the entire congregation, from the church school to the pulpit and beyond. By our spring annual meeting we hope to have three strategic partnerships, chosen by the congregation, that reflect the values and identity we hold. We will present and vote on these priorities during the Annual Meeting.
Our first session was fun and productive, with chili, cookies and good ideas shared by all. The next session will be held December 10th, 12:30-1:30, following Morning Prayer. We hope to see you there!
Next Visioning for Social Justice session following that will be on Sunday, February 25, at 10-10:45.
