Lansing's Faith Based Office Outlines Plans

In Lansing, Michigan last week, the Mayor’s Office of Faith Based Initiatives-- formed in January-- finally outlined to City Council the detailed program it plans to pursue. City Pulse today reports that the program will try to reach out to all of the area's 500 churches, but Bishop David Maxwell who heads the new Office said that most participants will likely be from 30 to 40 urban congregations in Lansing.
