Bridges Out of Poverty

Do you realize that Reno County has one of the highest poverty rates in the state of Kansas?  Do you think you understand the challenges and strengths of people living in poverty?  Do you care?  We’re offering two upcoming opportunities for a better understanding.

“Bridges Out of Poverty” training will be led by Rev. Jim Unruh, Circles of Hope-Reno County Coach, on Saturdays, January 20th and February 10th, both from 8:30 am until noon in Room #219.  Based in part on Dr. Ruby K. Payne’s myth shattering “A Framework for Understanding Poverty”, Bridges reaches out to the millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty.

Combined with Rev. Unruh’s personal experience with poverty in Hutchinson, this training is an eye opening experience. If you are interested in making a difference in our community and our world, contact the church office (620-665-5547) to register for one of these classes.
