Opportunities to partner

Christian unity is so important to our witness for Christ in this world - especially in the world today, as the political sphere is intensely vicious and Christians are particularly vulnerable to being used by all sides. It is so important that now, in a time of such uncertainty and ugliness, the Church shows the selflessness and love of Christ in our unity and in our love for others. And one of the ways we can do this is by working together to bring God's redemption to our city, partnering with each other in various joint initiatives, and supporting and advancing each other's work - and in doing so making the Gospel's message stronger.


There are always many opportunities for partnership among churches in DC, but I've recently had several great meetings with leaders from some other churches that have gotten me especially excited! Below are some opportunities for partnership I wanted to share with you all, in the hope that through working together on initiatives like this we may develop deeper relationships and more effectively further Christ's purposes in our city. Please contact me if you want to learn more about the partnership possiblities for any of these opportunities:


- Several churches in the DC area have been talking for awhile now about wanting to learn how the Church in DC can best join the fight against human trafficking. There are a group of us from several different churches meeting on September 12th to discuss our various ideas, experiences, and the holes God could be calling the Church in DC to fill in the fight against trafficking. Let me know if your church would like to be a part of this meeting!


- The District Chuch recently held our first Disaster Relief training, in order to certify some of our members (about 25 of us) to be First Responders in DC in the event of an emergency. Ricky Creech, President of the DC Baptist Convention, has partnered with the DC government to help form the first all-volunteer emergency responder team, and is in the process of training individuals to join this team. This is a huge, very visible way the Church in DC can join together to practically serve and love our city. It is going to be an awesome thing to see the first all-volunteer emergency responders in DC made up of the Church! If you would like Ricky to come do a training for your church so you can have a team join us as First Responders, email me and I'll put you in touch with Ricky.


- Northwest Community Church has a regular homeless ministry called The Refuge, as well as a weekly food drop-off to needy families, both of which are open to more volunteers. These are consistent, well-run ministries that provide great opportunities for collaboration among churches in serving the poor. If you want to find out more about either of these opportunities, email Krista Kartson at kkartson@aol.com


- Northwest Community Church and The District Church have been talking about the need for some type of single parent ministry. This ministry would provide parenting classes, babysitters to give parents a night off every once in a while, and other resources/services. If you're interested in talking with us more about what this could look like, please email me!

DC Area Church Classifieds

For many, the DC area is a transitory place. Whether people in your congregational family are moving down the block or across the world, changing jobs or doing home improvements, helping people through transitions is a frequent ministry in most of our communities. In addition to many personal helping hands, some have email listserves, and a handful of local congregations have public online classifieds to facilitate the process. Please leave a comment if there are any others not included.
