POVERTY AWARENESS BRAINSTORMING MEETING
In September we will begin a six-week church-wide focus on ministry with the poor. Hopefully, every facet of our ministry will take the time to learn more about under-resourced people in our area, and we pray that many of our people will take some action to make a difference. Please join us for a meeting in the Fellowship Hall after our meal on Aug. 16. During that meal, Kevin and Melody will share an overview of their plan and offer resources to you for your small group, Sunday School class, or other ministry. We will also enlist your help to ensure that this initiative is church-wide.
