Getting to know our faith based community better

One of our objectives for this year is to improve our community churchesoutreach.  We want to meet you and hear your concerns.  We want you to know us so that you can feel confidence in us to do the right things for the right reasons.

One way we thought might make sense is to meet people is in their churches, synagogues, mosques and temples.  So to that end we’ve scheduled a Coffee with a Cop at the Auburn Hills Christian Center on Walton Boulevard on Sunday, November 8th immediately following their 10 am service.  Several of us will be there and we are excited to meet so many new people!  This is not just an event for this congregation only– it is open to the public.  The church has graciously offered to sponsor the coffee so stop by and see us for the service or at around 1130 when the service is over.  We will be there as long as we can.

hinduAdditionally, we have invited representatives of all of the faith based organizations in and near our community to meet with us on December 3rd here at the police department.  We hope it will be an open dialog and exchange about how we can serve their congregations and communities in effective ways.  We have been watching the news too and we know that faith based organizations may feel somewhat vulnerable these days.  We are here to help.  I hope this meeting will be the first of many.

Thanks to Pastor Cal of the Auburn Hills Christian Center for sponsoring our coffee event.  And thanks to Sgt Dave Miller for organizing this whole effort.
