HOUSING INITIATIVE
EVENTS

Sunday, April 19 - All Church Conversation on our
Housing Initiative

11:00 a.m. in the FCC Fellowship Hall
Sponsored by the Housing Initiative Committee

We encourage everyone to join in an All Church Conversation on the Housing Initiative.  Following a brief presentation addressing the question:  What are you talking about when you say “Housing Initiative?”,  we will gather around tables in the Fellowship Hall and reflect on the question:  “What is our unique calling in addressing the housing crisis in our community?”  The Housing Initiative strives to have impact on the lack of safe affordable housing in our community by including everyone in the solutions.  We have some plans in place — and there are many dreams yet to be imagined.  We need everyone — all ages, perspectives, abilities and passions — to realize God’s realm of health, wholeness and justice for all creation.  Please join this holy conversation!


Saturday, April 25 - Human Rights and the Crisis of Youth Homelessness
