Proposal for Room 99

Since the Immigrant Support Team formed four years ago, we’ve seen a strong interest on the part of the congregation to be involved in immigrant support. In September 2020, when we gathered as a congregation to affirm interest in resuming the “Rise, O Church” campaign, we also heard a desire to find new, creative ways of using our facility to meet community needs, especially in light of the social changes we’ve witnessed this past year.

Our team has since introduced an exciting idea for engaging Gloria Dei more directly. We are proposing that we convert Room 99, off the short hallway to the gym, into an efficiency apartment that could serve the temporary housing needs of newcomers to our community while they seek permanent homes.
