Next week on Tuesday, October 17th, the Interfaith Coalition is holding their Annual Meeting, which is free and open to the public.  From Interfaith's description on their website:

Come. Be inspired. Share our hope and our work for a better future for everyone by attending our annual Hope Meeting, held each October. Congregational reps and friends are warmly invited to join us as we share highlights of the past year and look ahead to ambitious goals. Come for fellowship, inspiration and opportunities for how individuals and congregations can join in our work and mission.

This year's Annual Hope Meeting will be Tuesday, October 17 at 7 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church's Grace Center, 119 Texas Street in Bellingham. Please come and hear from families and volunteers who share stories of compassion and hope. Learn how you can help us serve additional homeless families through Family Promise. 

Please consider attending one or both of these events to support the important work being done in Bellingham and around Whatcom County.
