2024 BOOK STUDY Details!!!

In 2024 we will be spending our time reading about poverty and related issues. Jennifer Brown created the Ally Continuum, the four “stages” of being an ally are Apathetic, Aware, Active, and Advocate. The first three stages rely heavily on education. As a church that serves those that are homeless and food insecure, we must continue to learn about the struggles of those that we serve as well as about the systems at play.

Monthly discussion groups will be available in person and ZOOM.
