Neighborhood church looking to be a good neighbor

Our Saviors Lutheran Church (on Main Street) has embarked on the process of re-defining their mission, asking, “What is our role in being a good neighbor?” The congregation wants to expand their spiritual and service work outside the walls of their building at 1310 Main Street. As part of their search they are asking help from the neighboring community to expose and define needs and concerns in the Eastside Hill Neighborhood that they might direct their energy toward. The Church asks for your input.

What challenges/needs/problems are you aware of in our neighborhood? Please share your insights, questions and suggestions with the Church before Friday, May 16. Here are two ways you can do this by phone or email: call the Church at 832-2421 in the mornings, Monday through Friday and give your ideas to Emilee, the Church’s secretary, or email them at secretary@oursaviors-ec.com; or, send your comments via Mark Ruddy, 839-7949; markruddy55@yahoo.com. Because Mark is part of the Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association the Church has asked him to join a panel that will meet Friday afternoon, May 16, to share ideas for helping the neighborhood.

Our Saviors Lutheran Church has for years hosted meetings of our Eastside Hill Neighborhood Association. This meets a real need and is greatly appreciated. And, last fall, the Church sent 27 volunteers to work on the Boyd Park Prairie Garden as their “worship service” for that Sunday.

So, how would you finish a sentence that starts with, “What our neighborhood needs is…”.  Share your knowledge and your unique view of our neighborhood.
