What We Should All Know About Poverty

VOLUNTEER to Teach Essential Computer Skills!

Every Monday in June 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Manos de Cristo is in need of Computer Literacy Instructor volunteers.

Larry Coulter teaching As a church, we are heavily invested in ministry to the poor. It is the work to which Christ has called us.

WHEN: Tuesday and / or Thursday mornings from 9:30-11:30 am -- You can do one day a week or choose to do both Tuesday and Thursdays.

Starting tomorrow, the What Every Church Member Should Know About Poverty class will begin to stretch our thinking as we wrestle with the tough questions of “helping”. We will use the workbook of the same name, by Bill Ehlig and Ruby Payne, to guide our discussion.

Volunteers will need to commit for period of week of May 19th-week of July 7th. Prospective volunteers should have computer skills (Windows, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Internet, Gmail), and bilingual (English/Spanish) volunteers are highly encouraged to apply!

If you are trying to live out Christ’s call to be a light to the world this class will poke the hard questions and provide answers. I hope you will join us in the William Cannon library.
