Building Networks

Building a Network in Your Congregation

Goal: To find people willing to make a commitment to affect
public policy from a faith perspective.

Some ways to discover these people:

  • Approach individuals personally and ask them to become involved in an advocacy network. Visit with them after worship, after a meeting, or ask them to coffee or lunch.
  • Have the church council designate an Advocacy Sunday.
  • Have a place designated after worship where individuals can join LOGA.
  • Hold an Adult Forum on Advocacy. You might even want to write letters at the close.
  • Give a talk on advocacy.
  • Lift portions of the Legislative Update to put in your church newsletter.
  • Write an article about advocacy in your church newsletter.
  • Have a minute for mission and explain the advocacy network, the work of LOGA or an issue during worship.
  • Have advocacy network added to the time and talent sheet for stewardship.
