Texas Impact “Better Neighbors” Disaster Response Event
July 29 at 5:30pm First United Methodist Church of Corpus Christi
You are invited to a Better Neighbors presentation by Texas Impact staff at First United Methodist Church, Corpus Christi on Tuesday, July 29 at 5:30pm. We will be discussing how local congregations can better engage their local communities, Disaster Preparedness, and the Community Partner Recruitment Initiative. For July, the focus is on Disaster Preparedness.
Texas Impact is the state’s oldest and largest interfaith network made up of member denominational bodies, individual congregations and tens of thousands of individual Texans of faith. Texas Impact is a non-profit, non-partisan network promoting civic engagement around public policy issues of shared concern among our member denominations. (More info at www.texasimpact.org).
The presentation is a part of our Better Neighbors initiative. Better Neighbors is a new initiative aimed at educating and engaging local congregations on ways to be a “Better Neighbor,” reaching out to people in their local communities through direct service and policy implementation. Every month, Texas Impact will provide resources on a “Focus of the Month” campaign aimed at educating local communities of faith on how they can partner with the State to implement public policy on the local level.
We are providing a newsletter to our individual and organizational members on how they can participate in being prepared for future disasters. This month’s newsletter may be found online at http://texasimpact.org/BetterNeighbors/2014-July
