REACHING OUT
2013 Outreach

A Summary of the Minutes from the February 24 Outreach Committee Meeting

In attendance: Bonnie Bridge (Chair), Liz Horrum, Carolyn Strauss, Wally Stansbury, Connie Woods, Erika Dielman, Ellie Nicol.  Excused: Kathy Kan, Lou Zako, Mary Jane Zako

The Committee has a budget of $7,000 for 2013.  We discussed the need to have some guidelines to help determine what organizations to support financially this year.  Bonnie will bring to the next meeting a list of assigned gifts from years past. 

There was also some discussion about the need to communicate with other New Life committees (e.g. In-Reach, Women's Ministry, Evangelism, etc) so as to work together and prevent duplication of efforts.  Erika is on Vestry and is the head of the Women's Ministry, so she can help ensure cross-communication between different ministries.  The committee decided that monthly meetings would help the communication effort.  The minutes of the meetings will be posted on the website in summary format.  The Chair will email members with an Agenda prior to the monthly meetings.  Liz Horrum agreed to prepare the minutes.

The need for more formal structure was discussed and the committee decided that membership should be limited to 10 people, and that a quorum of 6 members should be required for a vote.  The meetings will continue to be open to attendance by the wider church body, but only members shall have voting privileges.  Unanimous voting has always been the standard for whether or not to distribute funds.

Ideas for outreach projects should be brought to the attention of the Chair, who will then call a meeting of the committee to discuss.

Used with permission

Use an empty shoe box (standard size, please) or a small plastic container. You can wrap the box (lid separately), but wrapping is not required. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift.

Determine whether your gift will be for a boy or a girl, and the child’s age category: 2-4,    5-9, or 10-14. Print out the appropriate boy/girl label by downloading the artwork to the right. Mark the correct age category on the label, and tape the label to the top of your box.

Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child. Use the gift ideas provided on the bottom of this page.

Please donate $7 or more for each shoe box you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs. You can give online by using our “Follow Your Box Donation” option, or you can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in an envelope on top of the gift items inside your box. If you or your family are preparing more than one shoe box, please make one combined donation.

Place a rubber band around each closed shoe box and drop it off at the collection center nearest you during our collection week, November 12-19, 2012. Drop-Off Locations

Christian Women’s Job Corps.  CWJC is in the process of registering participants for Jobs for Life classes beginning September 20, 2011 through November 10, 2011 at Michigan Works, 2225 Summit Park Drive, in Petoskey.  This is a free, eight week course, and meets twice a week from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Class topics include:  Attitude, Respect for Authority, Conflict Resolution.  Taking Responsibility, Teamwork, Perseverance, Effective Communication, Integrity, Excellence, Vocational Planning, Job Search Techniques, Building a Resume, Interviewing Skills and Customer Satisfaction.  If you know of anyone who is unemployed or underemployed and may benefit from additional services, support or mentoring, please call Josie Bennett (347-6890), or email cwjcpetoskey@live.com. 

Christian Women’s Job Corps/Christian Men’s Job Corps:  Programs provided include:

  • A Personal Mentor.  A mentor is someone who has grown through the knowledge and experience she or he has acquired over time and is now willing to share what they have learned with another person.  The mentoring relationship enables and empowers participants.  Participants meet regularly (usually weekly) with their personal mentors to plan together, talk, pray, do Bible study and celebrate the participant’s successes.  Mentors encourage and support. 

  • Personal Planning and Goal Setting.  Each participant works out a plan with his or her mentor to meet their individual goals for improving their livelihood.  This plan determines what training and support would be helpful, and together the participant and mentor identify realistic and achievable action steps to reach the participants goal.  The mentor continues to walk alongside the participant until the agreed upon goal(s) is reached. 

  •  Job Readiness Classes.  Starting in April/May of 2011, the Jobs for Life job readiness program will be offered.  This is an eight week class, meeting twice a week for two hours each week.  Class topic include:  Attitude, Respect for Authority, Conflict Resolution.  Taking Responsibility, Teamwork, Perseverance, Effective Communication, Integrity, Excellence, Vocational Planning, Job Search Techniques, Building a Resume, Interviewing Skills and Customer Satisfaction. 

  •  Life Skills Classes.  These classes will be offered on an as-needed basis.  In many cases, participants will be referred to classes which are offered through other community organizations, and their relationship with their mentor will continue during these classes.  Examples of classes are:  nutrition, budgeting, parenting, growing vegetables, mending clothes, etc. 

All volunteer helpers for this ministry are Christians.  Mentors are still needed and training is offered and required.  If you have any interest in this program, please call 347-6890 or email cwjcpetoskey@live.com.
