Listening Campaign

Wrap-up & Next Steps

Gathering

Saturday, May 3, 9:00am-3:00pm (breakfast at 8:30)
At First United Methodist Church, 703 Essex St., Bangor, ME

All are welcome, you do not need to be affiliated with a faith community or have previously participated in Faith Linking in Action

Breakfast and lunch will be served.

RSVP NOW to martin@foodandmedicine.org or 989-5860 for this opportunity to learn skills and join together to build a community that reflects our faith values

On March 1, 12 congregations and organizations in Faith Linking in Action launched our Listening Campaign to learn our community’s concerns, and hopes. On May 3, we will begin to move from this phase of building relationships and identifying problems into a new phase of researching solutions and planning a strategy to address the problems. We will:

  • share what we’ve heard in our listening
  • welcome new leaders we’ve identified
  • plan next steps to address the concerns that have surfaced through our listening
