Soup and Seminars
Dinner at 6:00 PM, Seminar from 6:30 – 7:30 PM.
For four (4) Wednesdays in Lent our topic of discussion will be Who are Our Kids anyway?: Exploring our faith, the “opportunity gap” and our call to minister to children living in poverty in Christ’s name. The series will explore our Christian theology of children, our nation’s current status of children living in poverty and where the Holy Spirit is calling us forward in conversation, prayer and partnership. After enjoying a good soup or two we will be engaged in a presentation and discussion. Led by Pastor Alanna.
