Hear from our Community Partners … Panel Discussions

We invite (and encourage!) members of the parish to attend our upcoming Community Engagement Panels. We will hear about community needs (and thoughts about Christ Church involvement) from a variety of organizations. Choose the date/time that works for you: November 15 (11:30a.m.-12:30 p.m.), November 22 (11.30 a.m.-12.30 p.m.) and Tuesday, December 1 (7 – 8 p.m.). These gatherings will be held in the Chapel.
Our goal as a parish is to discover and proclaim a renewed and renewing mission for our parish. Critical to this process is our opportunity to listen to various organizations in our community, such as the police department, fire department, housing authority, board of health, high school guidance, town government, Sudbury Farms, and Diversity Council. We have asked them to share, through their unique lenses, the hopes and challenges in the Needham community … and how a community of faith may play a role in these challenges. We are planning for 4-5 panelists at each of the sessions, with a parish moderator and scribe. We will provide panelists with questions in advance (note that there will be limited time for questions from the audience). Come participate in this important step to defining our renewed mission as a parish.
