Dear Rose City Park Church,
I am inviting and encouraging all of our Portland churches to attend a November 15 “Faith Forum and Resource Fair on Affordable Housing” that is a partnership between the City of Portland and Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. As I have made my way around the presbytery affordable housing has often been the number one community and mission concern among our congregations. Many of our churches either have unused property or underutilized building space. The purpose of this forum is to bring both city leaders and church leaders together to explore ways that we could partner together to put a dent in the area’s affordable housing crisis.
Gratefully in ministry together,
Rev. Brian Heron
Presbyter for Vision and Mission
Presbytery of the Cascades
