Welcoming the Stranger Ideas & Resources

Share worship space

This is one of the easiest ways to welcome the stranger among us.

It will be necessary for the two parties to discuss fully the conditions of usage.  Worship times, availability of space, rental (?) and other factors need to be agreed upon.  Contact your District Field Outreach Minister to get the name of a church near you which has done this successfully.

Offer ESL Classes

 English/Second Language classes are a common need.  These can be taught by volunteers with textbooks and a little experience in a language. 

WIC Clinic

(Women, Infants, and Children Nutritional Program) Des Moines West provides space for a WIC Clinic.  Space may be needed for other government sponsored events, such as anger management and abuse problems.
