Poverty simulation and discussion.
February 18, 2018; 10:30-1 pm
Community service project(s). These will be explained further before we adjourn on Feb. 17. There will be opportunities for all ages and ability levels.
All ages are encouraged to participate.
For children 4th grade and younger, we will have a movie offered during the Saturday events, however they are invited to participate in the simulation if they would like. This is a great chance for families to think about poverty, as well.
There is no cost to attend, thanks in large part to the support of the Endowment Fund.
Lunch is provided both days. Simply come ready to participate, learn and discuss on Saturday, and ready to work on Sunday.
We will be hosting Urban Immersion Service Retreats staff to facilitate our Saturday simulation and discussion.
This will be an opportunity to consider what it means to live on the margins, acknowledge the many blessings that both those living in poverty and those who are not possess, and seek ways to use our various gifts to support those in need. Perhaps you and/or your family has experienced this, is experiencing it, or perhaps you have no idea about what it is like to live on the margin. Bring your experiences, thoughts, concerns, and an open-mind. All are welcome!

We will begin with a poverty simulation in which we break into families and see what it is like to live on a poverty level budget, making decisions about food, shelter, transportation and dealing with circumstances that arise.
We'll conclude with a discussion of the experience, how our understanding has changed, and some ideas about how we can bring God's love to people who are struggling.

Please register by February 4.
