Homeless Ministries Task Force January 11th
Present: Doug, Lindsey, Jennifer, Norm, Richard, Peg, Mike, Mary
Pastor Lindsey opened with prayer.
Lindsey reported on Outreach Team progress. John working on meeting with apartment residents, no progress yet. Lindsey has contacted a neighbor east of Stony Point Road who is willing to have a meeting in her home Wed, Jan 25 at 6:30 p.m. Discussion on how best to populate, but not over-populate the meeting. We were reminded that Julie Combs recommends targeting “persuadables”.
Blake has received a phone call from a parent in the neighborhood who is “opposed but willing to talk.” Perhaps he could attend, or even host, a meeting.
Outreach efforts are continuing.
Doug has received e-mail from Lori, the R.L. Stevens school principal, that she is receiving calls at the school and would like to know what to tell people. Doug will reply to her email and suggest he meet with her next week.
Most of the time was discussing the plan for the Saturday Church Council meeting. Richard will make the main presentation, and Mike will follow with a “let’s get on with it” pitch.
