Join the Conversation: Assessing and Engaging Your City
Seattle is its own melting pot. There are individuals coming here from all over the world to work, raise families and experience new opportunities. In a way, as we are told to “go into all the world,” much of the world has come to us. The nations have come to our backyard, and because we now have this opportunity it’s necessary to ask the question: How do we assess and engage our city? After all, King County’s diversity stretches across every street, neighborhood and suburb of Seattle.
We would like to invite you to attend Light Up the City’s spring gathering event on May 21, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at Emerald City Bible Fellowship Church. We will be hosting World Vision’s Romanita Hairston, and she will be sharing with us on “Assessing and Engaging your City.” We’re excited to hear and learn from Romanita, as we believe she has an expertise on this issue, especially around the greater-Seattle area. We will also be hearing stories from our local network leaders about the good that is taking place throughout King County, specifically some amazing stories from Easter weekend in Seattle. We’ll spend time praying over our cities and networking with one another, and of course, lunch will be provided.
Emerald City Bible Fellowship Church is located at 7728 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle, WA, 98118, and check-in will begin at 11:00 a.m. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with Chris at 206.769.7638 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and you can register online for the event here.
Also, in case you were unable to attend the last Light Up the City event and missed the announcement, there is another opportunity to hear from Pastor Robert Loggins from Ferguson, MO. You are invited to Eastside Foursquare Church at 14520 100thAve NE, Bothell, WA, to hear from Pastor Loggins on community transformation, racial reconciliation and unity in the Body of Christ.
Pastor Loggins is a dynamic speaker with a profound vision, and we’re excited to hear an update from on what’s been happening in Ferguson, as well as some of the race conversation nationwide. Opportunities to hear Pastor Loggins include:
Sunday, May 17th with at services: 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Monday, May 18th with live Q & A at 6:30 p.m.

We’re excited for these busy, next two weeks around the Light Up the City Network, and we can’t wait to see you at these events. We are looking forward to not only learning from these keynote speakers, but also applyingwhat we learn in order to see our cities transformed in the name of Jesus.
