The Elders have called a Congregational Meeting on 04.22 after worship at which the congregation will vote whether or not to enter into a Joint Venture Agreement with Community Ventures for the creation of permanent, supportive housing for the formerly homeless.
The first Community Conversation on this subject took place on Palm Sunday, March 25.
The second Community Conversion on this subject will take place this Sunday, April 15, in the Social Hall following worship. Community Ventures has presented Old First with a draft version of the Joint Venture Agreement. The Elders will be offering an explanation and outline of what it includes and what it asks of Old First. At the same meeting, the Elders will be sharing a draft of wording for the resolution they will be presenting.
Participation in this meeting should go a long way towards understanding the next steps in a complicated process and a big project. The Elders will also be present to answer questions, and record questions that either we do not yet have answers for or cannot yet be answered.
(There will also be time for questions and discussion at the actual Congregational Meeting on 04.22 after the motion has been put on the floor.)
