Many people have asked, “What is Public Affairs?”
Besides helping the stake with this blog, we work with the communities in which we live to build relationships with people not of our faith. Specifically, we try to build relationships with opinion leaders in each town (mayors, school board members, leaders of other churches, etc.) and work with them to make our communities stronger.
In Highlands Ranch, we help organize various service opportunities- such as the Hunger Stops Here Food Drive organized last April and the Teacher Appreciation Dinner also held in April. We also helped with the 4th of July Float and Parade as a way to try and inform people about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We do not proselyte, we simply try to build relationships with those not of our faith.
Serving on the Public Affairs committee has been both rewarding and fun! There is never a dull moment as we try to build relationships and dispel myths, and most importantly- to serve others.
