The current installment of the COEC began meeting in 2007.

We are currently on a "break," for no particular reason, and many little reasons - mostly pertaining to life circumstances. If anyone is interested in calling a meeting, feel free to post on the blog, join the google group (see link below) and send an email, or contact either Nancy (nancykj10@yahoo.com) or Jesse (schroeder.jesse@gmail.com) for more information.

Upcoming Dates

Hi everyone - just some business here regarding the next two weeks activities. Let me know your feedback, likes/dislikes, ideas, etc.

June 15th is scheduled to be a discussion week, and I've asked Rachel Swartz of LowerLights ministry to come and share with us some of her experiences working with inner city families. I thought it could be cool to a get more balanced perspective as we prepare for serving dinner on Sat. June 21st.

So if everyone is cool with it, we can plan for a "normal" discussion week, Sun. June 15th, 3-5pm at Global Gallery, with the topic being poverty in Columbus. Perhaps some frisbee/games in the park again afterwards?

Then Sat. June 21st is an opportunity to serve a meal to some families connected with LowerLights. This will be from about 4:30-7:30pm altogether, and there is no obligation, but it'd be great to have some people come and also help to provide food and drinks.

I know that week is scheduled to be a "super-fun" week, and so I thought that perhaps we could move our weekly activity to that same Saturday night, the 21st. Then we could come up with a "super-fun" idea to invite the families from dinner to participate in as well. Perhaps a movie night at the church, putt-putt golfing, or something similar.

Ideas? Thoughts?
