Door County People of Faith, a new congregation and spiritual group that plans to “keep it simple: caring and sharing,” has scheduled its first gathering for Jan. 18, 10 – 11:30 am, upstairs at Glas Coffee House in Sturgeon Bay.
Rev. Bruce H. Joffe, the group’s facilitator and founding pastor, hopes that Door County People of Faith will be a welcome addition to the local interfaith community by serving people who feel “out of sync” with existing structures or – for whatever reason – haven’t yet found a church that “speaks their language.”
The spiritual group’s emphasis on caring and sharing is evident in how it will handle its finances. Without a building to support or staff to sustain, collections will go to support two dozen local social service and welfare organizations.
“I believe it behooves us to demonstrate our love for others by more carefully supporting the myriad nonprofits already operating in our community,” Pastor Bruce says. “To be truly about caring and sharing, we should seek to spend as much on others as we do on ourselves.”
Door County People of Faith supports the full inclusion of all people regardless of age, race, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, family formation, heritage, ethnicity or language spoken.
