Justice Ministry Announcement: Jobs Committee: Our Justice Ministry continues to work through BOLD Justice on Jobs in Broward County. We continue to be concerned about the 67,000 unemployed in Broward County. We will be looking for the county commission to address this through a priority hiring ordnance. On Tuesday, November 5th @ 10:00am the County Commission will be deciding if they will hold a public hearing on this issue. If they decide yes, the public hearing will be on Tuesday, December 10th @ 2:00pm [Note: this is a change from the original date. Please make note of the new dates]. All meetings are to be held at the County Commission Chambers (115 South Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale). There is ample parking at the location. We will need everyone from the Church who is free during the day to attend these meetings, especially the November meeting. We will all come dressed in a red blouse or tee shirt and sit together to show our support. It is essential that we have a large group representation from all of our churches to support this effort. If you are free to go, please let either Donna Simms or Roland Abel know.


The Branches Thanksgiving Meal Delivery Program helps to brighten the holiday for those in need by working with volunteers to cook, package and deliver Thanksgiving Meals to thousands of individuals and families. In 2012, Branches provided over 7,300 meals to our less-fortunate community members on Thanksgiving morning with the help from over 1,500 volunteers. You could be one of those volunteers this Thanksgiving 8 a.m. to noon or a driver 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A group of us will be going to help at Norland UMC in nearby Miami Gardens (885 NW 195th Street.) If you would like more information or help with signing up to volunteer please talk to Sharon Allen or Pastor David
