The last three weeks have deconstructed our view, understanding and practical applications for helping and addressing poverty. This week, Pastor Doug will reconstruct a model of helping with real world opportunities right here in Sioux Falls. Don’t miss this foundational teaching in the final week of our Poverty: Who Cares series.
This Fall, there will be many opportunities to help people in need; toy drives, food drives, Thanksgiving meals, and a myriad of other opportunities. Do they help? Not only do many of the programs designed to address poverty needs not help but they actually hurt. This week, Pastor Brian will show us how to help so that our helping does not hurt. Don’t miss week three of our Poverty: Who Cares series.
Poverty is such a big issue that we don’t know how to really help. We tend to get frustrated and confused. Most of us stick our heads in the sand and try not to think about it but Jesus calls us to care about poverty. This week, Pastor Doug will help us understand this calling as we work towards a helpful response to poverty. Don’t miss week two of our Poverty: Who Cares series.
When we think of poor people, we might think they are poor because they are making poor decisions, but the data does not support that belief. You may be unaware of the system that limits what decisions can be made and compounds the impact of poor decisions. This week Pastor Brian will kick off this series as he helps us reframe and define poverty in the first message of our Poverty: Who Cares series.
