Hands-On Ministry Showcase and Annual Meeting
Grand Rapids Metro Ministry invites you to their annual meeting at La Nueva Esperanza on Tuesday, Oct 24. Dinner will be served at 6pm followed by a program at 7pm. The program will showcase a number of the UMC related ministries that are doing work right here in the Grand Rapids area such as:
- Thrive: A Refugee Support Program
- Justice For Our Neighbors
- Circles Grand Rapids
- Reading is Fundamental of Greater Grand Rapids
- Native American Elders Program
- Community Ministries at Trinity UMC
This is a GREAT opportunity to learn about the work being done locally and how you can get involved. Plus, it’s a great way to network with all the wonderful folks who are working to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the Grand Rapids area.
Advance RSVPs are requested for dinner.
RSVP HERE or via email to Holly Downer at Holly@GRMetroMinistry.org.
After the program, we will hold the business portion of the Grand Rapids Metro Ministry meeting where we will vote on our Board of Directors and budget. Per our bylaws, all United Methodist Churches in the Greater Grand Rapids area are eligible to vote at our annual meeting. Each church may designate one person to vote on behalf of their congregation.
There is something amazing about sharing a cup of coffee or tea with someone.
Please join us for an evening of laughter, fellowship and community building!
Coffee + Tea = Community
No RSVP is necessary!
