Last week almost 100 members of our Beloved Community gathered at the Stephenson Center to learn, listen, share and connect with neighbors. The time you took and energy you spent last Thursday was a radical act of love- Thank You!

We plan to have quarterly gatherings like this that connect, celebrate, challenge us and build relationships with diverse members of the Wake Forest Community. We also plan to continue to meet the immediate needs of those experiencing food insecurity by serving meals, groceries and produce on Monday nights at Hope Hope, Tuesday nights at Wellington Park Mobile Home Community and Wednesday nights at Olive Branch Baptist Church.
We hope you will join us again in January or February for our next gathering or you can volunteer or donate to our meal program.

Special thanks to our leadership team:
Rev. Dr. Enoch and Dr. Marion Holloway and Gwen Sneed-Friendship Chapel Baptist Church
Tenice Caudle- Northeast Community Coalition
Rev. Larry Wilder-Olive Branch Baptist Church
Rev. Sarah Phelps & Roxanne Johnson- St. John's Episcopal Church
Rev. Bill Slater and Leah Harlow- Wake Forest Baptist Church
Rev. Dr. David Griffin-Wake Forest Christian Church
