We are a One Wake church. What does this mean? What is One Wake?

ONE Wake is a non-partisan, multi-ethnic, multi-issue group of religious congregations, associations, and other non-profits in the Wake County area with aggregate membership totaling in excess of 50,000 households.

ONE Wake aims to identify common problems, to find or create workable solutions, and to work together to implement systemic changes within society to achieve the common good.

How can you get involved?

There are several upcoming Property Tax Canvassing events planned for Southeast Raleigh (11/20, 11/27 and 12/4). The goals for this canvassing action are: 1) meet and build relationships with more homeowners; 2) brief them on the recent property tax assembly; 3) invite them to come to the table with ONE Wake to make a deal on a new tax assistance initiative.

For a great summary of proposed Wake County tax increases and ONE Wake’s canvassing efforts, watch this short video (2m 25s) from CBS news. (NOTE: if you pay especially close attention you’ll see several Ekklesia members in attendance at the meeting.)
