TALK IT UP! Why Churches Should Consider Partnering with Neighbors

Todd GoddardComment

I received the following note written by a director of a day program in our area that is housed in a local church:

"I had the opportunity to spend the day at the St. Stephens day hab yesterday and was so very impressed with how the team has built such a strong relationship with members at the Church. Ron, who is a member of St. Stephens stopped in to say hello to everyone and thanked (staff and attendees) for supporting a recent breakfast that the Church hosted. He shared with the group that all of the proceeds were being donated to the WNY food bank. 

(One of the lead staff) shared with me that the day hab will be joining St. Stephens Church members for the Lenten Seasons upcoming Friday fish fry! There is often a benefit from sharing space, community relationships are being built and we are able to share a similar mission."
