SEMINAR: BRIDGES OUT OF POVERTY...Sabbath April 14, 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Heartland Hall. If you didn’t grow up in poverty you may be unaware of the “hidden rules” that govern many aspects of life for the poor. People in poverty are often in survival mode, and support systems taken for granted by people in middle and upper classes are largely nonexistent. A deeper understanding of their challenges and strengths will help our church partner with them to create opportunities for success. Come listen to Alynn Sampson, the Youth and Families Program Director of the Food Bank of Lincoln, as she helps us better understand those we serve.
