Mid-Hudson Love In the Name of Christ Update – July 15, 2016

The “Discover Your Ministry Fit” workshop scheduled for tomorrow morning (July 16, 2016) has been CANCELLED.  This general orientation for potential volunteers will be rescheduled sometime in August.

We are continuing to meet regularly with pastors and church leaders to work on the details and gain momentum for the new level of relational ministry to begin in September. All who are interested in being a part of this exciting ministry are encouraged to attend! For more information or a schedule of meeting dates, please contact Carley Andrews at carleyandrews25@yahoo.com. We need people with varying skills and talents to make our vision for Love INC’s relational ministry a reality!

In preparation for our new relational ministry focus, we are offering training for people willing to volunteer as Community LINCs.  These are people who meet one-on-one on a weekly basis with motivated clients – to be a friend and encourage our neighbors.  The 2-session training is held at New Beginnings (35 DeGarmo Road, Poughkeepsie).  Upcoming training dates are –

·        Wed, July 27, 6:30 – 9 pm (Session #1) – Community LINC Training (poverty, goal-setting, expectations)

·        Wed, Aug 3, 6:30 – 9 pm (Session #2) – Community LINC Training (listening, boundaries, support)

·        Mon, Aug 22, 6:30 – 9 pm (Session #1) – Community LINC Training (poverty, goal-setting, expectations)

·        Mon, Aug 29, 6:30 – 9 pm (Session #2) – Community LINC Training (listening, boundaries, support)

“Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”  ~ Philippians 2:9-11
