CAJE House Meetings
Last fall Bethlehem became a participating congregation in CAJE (Congregations Acting for Justice and Empowerment). Each year CAJE follows a three step process which begins with hosting Listening Sessions. Listening Sessions or “house meetings” bring small groups of church members, neighbors, and friends together to discuss what they see and experience as concerns in our community. These concerns are then compiled and voted upon by all the participating congregations to determine what new issue will be researched and addressed for the current year.
Bethlehem’s CAJE team members invite you to join us in attending one of the following four house meetings to be held in October:
· Wednesday, October 11 at 6:30 p.m.—Home of Dee and Bob Carithers
4301 Rimridge Drive – 812-426-2520
· Sunday, October 15 at 4:00 p.m.—Home of Susan and Mark Sirnic
2530 Bonaire Drive – 812-626-9034
· Tuesday, October 17 at 2:00 p.m.—Home of Kaye Platts
866 S. Alvord Blvd. – 812-303-9177
· Sunday, October 22 at 6:30 p.m.—Home of Carol and Brian Newton
2821 Woodside Ct. – 812-909-5296
If you are interested in attending a house meeting, pick one that works well for you and give the host/hostess a call to let them know you are coming. If you receive a call or verbal invitation to attend one of the house meetings, please say “yes”, and come share your thoughts about justice issues that you feel need to be addressed in our community. To learn more about CAJE, please pick up one of the CAJE pamphlets located on the Communication Board just outside of the church office.
And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8
