August 17, 2022 – CAJE Update

Good morning and Happy Wednesday! We apologize if you are receiving this email a second time. We had a problem with the original distribution list this morning.
We hope this email finds you all healthy. The latest variant of Covid-19 has made the rounds with CAJE staff and some of our Justice Ministry Leaders. Please pray for everyone’s full recovery – and for the recovery of our co-chair Pamela Decker who had surgery late last month.
It may seem like a “slow” time in the organization but there is much going on…

1. CAJE staff and a few talented congregational leaders have been working on
several grant applications. We covet your prayers that our requests will be accepted.
We hope to hire a Spanish-speaking Associate Organizer in the spring or summer of 2023! Our Hispanic/Latino brothers and sisters need to be empowered to “do justice” through the grassroots strategies of CAJE. An organizer fluent in Spanish would help us to achieve that goal.
2. We are awaiting to hear more information regarding the county funding for the
Evansville Diversion Center. We will send out an update as soon as we hear

3. We are a little more than halfway to our Congregational Investment Drive goal of $80,000. Please prayerfully consider an investment – or increase of your pledge.
There are two easy ways to give.
1. Mail you check (or set up a monthly check distribution through your financial
institution) to:
PO Box 18172
Evansville IN 47719
2. Visit our website to invest through squarespace: Your investment is sent to CAJE in just a few

3. Our annual Listening Process Kick Off is less than a month away! Tuesday
September 13, our Team Captains will participate in a local Listening Process
training. Our Listening Sessions will be conducted from September 14 – October
If you are a Team Captain who has yet to schedule your House Meeting, please
contact your Organizer ASAP.

4. Speaking of October 14: Our Inaugural Justice Ministry Retreat has been
rescheduled for Friday October 14, 10 am – 6pm at the Lakeside Shelter,
Burdette Park. Please consider joining us for a day of faith, fun, and foundational relationship building. Contact Amy or Yvonne for details.
5. IMPORTANT:  Tonight’s interactive ratepayer parade, hosted by DAACE has been indefinitely postponed. We will conduct our monthly prayer vigil, just west of CenterPoint headquarters on Thursday August 25.
In Solidarity,
