With four at-large and nine district seats, the City Council is the official legislative body for Boston's…More neighborhoods. The council serves as a connection between residents and all facets of municipal government. The council has the authority to enact ordinances, resolutions and orders and it is mandated to represent the interest of Boston residents.
Weekdays, the council's offices on the fifth floor of City Hall are open to residents. Each councillor has a staff that is accessible to walk-in visitors, though appointments are recommended.
The council also accepts public comment during its weekly meetings in the City Council Chamber, which is also located on the fifth floor. Meetings start at noon each Wednesday.
Agendas for weekly meetings are available on the council's web site. A full schedule of the council's committee meetings is also available online too.
The church's mission, according to its Web site, is to "experience and express the tangible love of Jesus Christ in…More greater Jamaica Plain and beyond, inviting others into the Kingdom of God and to follow Jesus."
In addition to the Sunday worship services, members often meet in each others' homes in "Life Groups."
Rental of the church's facilities are available. Call the church for details.
Administrative offices are at 406 S. Huntington Ave., about a block away from the church.
