Church to help community
The Bridgeville Charge and the Bridgeville Union United Methodist Church are working with Methodist churches from the Smyrna area in a program called Communities of Shalom. The goal of this program is to enable the church to be the catalyst for the rebuilding and renewing of communities. Through a collaborative style the Communities of Shalom strategy works to equip the community to plan for its future, using church and community assets for spiritual, social and economic growth and development. The Communities of Shalom was started in 1992 as the United Methodist Church's response to the Los Angeles riots. The initiative started in three Los Angeles communities and has spread throughout the country. Today, more than 300 Shalom sites are active in the world with more than 50 new ones beginning each year. For more information about this project contact the Rev. Purnell Moody (337-3281) or the Rev. Gary Tulak (337-7409).
