National Conference Call - Reaching Our Communities

For the first time in many months, the usual "third Thursday" cityreaching conference call will not be held. Jarvis Ward will be in W. Palm Beach, and Glenn Barth is working with hurricane Katrina disaster response in Mississippi. This month we invite you to participate in the Last Tuesday conference call hosted by Dennis Fuqua and Phil Miglioratti on Tuesday, October 25th at 12 noon Eastern time, 9:00am Pacific time. The number to call is 661-705-2000 (code 251005).

Dennis interviews a guest or two from each featured city, asking two questions:
What is God doing currently in your city?
What was the process that God used to get you to the point you are now?
(God's work in a city is unique.)

The featured city this month will be Springfield, Missouri. Dennis writes:

What would make a principal of an elementary school go on local television and say that what the “faith-based community” did for the students at her Title I school was "a miracle"? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that they provided tutors for her school, resulting in ALL of her students being at or above grade-level!

We welcome your dial-in participation, using the phone number above.
Do you know of a city where there is significant evidence that the united Church is making a
difference? If you would like to nominate a city to be featured on this call, please let me
know at We want to hear more God stories.

It is not too late if you missed any of these previous calls: Elk River, MN; Tukwila, WA; Santa
Rosa, CA; Branson, MO; Boise, ID; Corvallis, OR; Albany, NY. You can still hear stories of
God at work in these cities by requesting a copy on CD. They are available for $7.00. To
purchase one, email
