Time was well spent this past weekend with Greg and Mike from the Upper Room. A small group met with them Friday evening for dinner and had a "get to know you session". On Saturday, information on what a healthy community looks like was presented with additional training about Sponsorship, with 9 Steering Committee members present.
An Action plan was created and the following areas will be what we target next:
1. Outreach to churches to include clergy recruitment
2. Build Group Reunions
3. Sponsorship education
We will continue to hold our monthly Gatherings. We had approximately 45 in attendance on Saturday evening. Our February Gathering will be at Friendship UMC in Hephzibah on Friday, Feb. 16th at 6:30pm.
We have a sub committee that will begin researching local campsites to secure a place for our future Walks to be held. We are aiming for a Spring Walk in 2019 at the recommendation of Greg and Mike.
If you would like to help in any way, please contact me or Christy Martin, who is our Steering Committee Chairperson. Her number is 706-836-3944. We need lots of help to get our Community up and running again.
