Two or three times a year we gather off-site to talk about several significant issues related to the vision of our community. We're doing it again on Monday, May 6. Join us. You'll hear news and help us think through important stuff.
WHEN: Monday, May 6, 7:00-8:30pm (social time 6:30-6:55pm). It's a fascinating building and the event space is a fun place to be. The Keg & Case Brewery is right there, as well, if people want to come early and get dinner, or stay later. We have lots to talk about and get feedback on, so please be ready to go by 7 pm.
LOCATION: Schmidt Brewery Artists Lofts, 900 7th St W, St Paul. Park on the street and look for Fabric signage.
TOPICS: There is always much to talk about, but a few things stand out as worth gathering and learning about together. Here's what we are planning to deal with on Monday:
1. Quick peek at our Financial Health and recap of the March Giving Challenge.
2. Discussion about sharing Fabric with others and being a fully welcoming community on Sundays.
3. The Riverside Innovation Hub (RIH) Project. The Lily Foundation is sponsoring a project on engaging young adults age 22-29 with church. Augsburg University is one hub of that research and we were selected to participate in it. Mason Mennenga, from Augsburg RIH is working with a team from Fabric to better understand what engagement with this generation could look like and we then have the option to apply for a $30,000 grant to implement an experiment for our community.
There will be snacks, adult beverages and sparkling water available for a small donation. See you there.
