    Cost of Poverty Experience

    Every day significant challenges to move from struggling to thriving are faced by socio-economically disadvantaged families. Can people who haven’t faced such challenges begin to develop a greater understanding that can help lead to positive change?Yes, we can learn to serve with dignity and effectiveness. It might, however, take a willingness to step into another person’s shoes.

    The Cost of Poverty Experience is a simulation that offers a glimpse into obstacles faced, decisions that have to be made, and consequences that impact families every day in and around Gainesville, FL. Faith Mission is excited to offer the Cost of Poverty Experience at Trinity. Please join us for this very impactful workshop on Sunday, February 3, from 1 - 4:30pm. There is no cost to attend. Limited to the first 40 participants who register. Lunch is provided.

    not a fan. Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus

    Jesus said, "Follow me." Many of us want to be followers of Jesus, but are we just fans? A fan is "an enthusiastic admirer". But fans don't have a deep, growing friendship with the object of their admiration. "not a fan" will challenge us to consider what it really means to be a follower of Jesus. It will suggest ways each of us can take an honest look at our own relationship with Jesus and decide if maybe we want to go deeper into this idea of follower....to follow Christ with greater devotion and truly become, not a fan. Childcare is available with a reservation (age one - 5th grade).

    • Wednesdays, January 16 - February 20
    • 6:30 - 8:00pm
    • Room 209
    • Leader: Susan Jones
    • Class Materials: 12 (payable at the bookstore or on the first day of class)
