There must be something more; something behind it all. Chelsea Forbrook wants to hear the best ways to help you connect with the glue that holds it all together. Uptown Church is joining her in a Friendraiser to reclaim the importance of Spiritual Direction and connecting with that which lies beyond and among us. Will you be generous with your ideas on July 30th?
This is an event to generate ideas. So we ask that you leave your checkbook at home.
(Thank you to The Midtown Company for training us in the art of friend-raising.)
Uptown Church recognizes an acute need for change. It's our experience that people find little to no value in the church as an institution. We also believe institutions cannot love people, only people can love people. We have a hunch that happens through the rubbing of elbows, sharing of space and concern for similar values in the community. That's when we can offer the nudge, to say, â€œGod is present in the very things valued by this community.
We believe hosting Friendraisers for local non-profits and businesses is one of the many ways to start the conversation about the value of shared ideas, a neighborhood, and the beautiful people that constitute the Church.
