Poverty and the Bible
what does the Bible say about the poor?
This series is designed to get a deeper understanding of what poverty is, what it looks like, and how it affects each of us, our church, community, city and America. We will delve into the myths and realities of what it means to live in poverty, fight poverty and how we can make a difference. For example…did you know 25% of active military families rely on Food Stamps? Are you aware that 1 in 6 Americans don’t have access to enough food? During this 4 session class we will learn who the people of poverty are and the “toxic stress” they live with. We will also examine God’s word for guidance and counsel in loving our neighbor as ourselves.
