Real Poverty Solutions: Broke, Hungry, Homeless in Ann Arbor
November 3 - 24
Our Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County neighbors are often hungry, lack affordable shelter and cannot pay for basic needs of food, shelter, health care, education, transportation and healthy relationships. As Christians, we are to care for our neighbors. To do this we need to better understand the systemic issue of poverty in our community.
During November, we will have conversations with community leaders who are engaged in the areas of need within Washtenaw County. Currently we address the symptoms of poverty by providing food, affordable housing, and access to services. One of the questions we will ask is: What can we do to alleviate poverty? How do we change our mindset to support families in poverty and take actions that will provide more equitable resources for all?
Mission Sunday is November 17 - The conversations and activities will include all age groups and mission projects including the Mission Bazaar and mission-focused worship with special guest preacher Rev. Faith Fowler, Executive Director of Cass Community Social Services in Detroit, at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m.
