This week at Interfaith Ministries we had our annual all staff retreat. This month I want to emphasize how honored I am to work with an amazing team of individuals who work tirelessly to serve our community. You may not know all or even the majority of our staff, but I would encourage you to get to know a few more this year. You will see below a variety of ways to be involved with IM in the next month, and participate in our vital work of feeding the hungry, welcoming the stranger, and embracing religious diversity. Please take a moment and peruse the opportunities to be involved with us.
We are in the final two weeks of registration for The Amazing Faiths Dinners, and I hope that you will join us this year for another great evening. I would like to personally extend an invitation to those of you who may have reservations or concerns about coming to a dinner. We welcome everyone at our table, and I believe that you will have a great evening. Also, I would remind those of you who have previously attended that we have a new option for returning guests, so come back and try something new!
I hope that you enjoy the fall weather, warm gatherings with friends and family, and will choose to spend some of your time with us in the coming month. Have a great November!
