Congregation Story – More than 100 volunteers participate in cleanup, resource fair in Sherman Park SHIFT Inspiration – Hey, that’s our very own Rev. Tim Perkins from Bethel-Bethany UCC in Milwaukee participating in a cleanup day and resource fair in Sherman Park. This is also the reality of this neighborhood – neighbors coming together to make their community safer, stronger and more resilient. This is an important counterbalance to the numerous stories of violence around the tragedies that unfolded this summer. (We’d love to share YOUR stories!)
Community Engagement is one of the five areas of ministry that we believe will be the focal point for many congregational Shift efforts. We would love to hear about the community engagement activities your congregation engages in. Please send your stories and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions, contact Tisha Brown.
As we gather stories from congregations around the conference, we’ll add them to the menu at right. Check them out!
If you’re looking to expand your community engagement, here are some thought starters or possible shifts that might be pursued
