2016 POVERTY SIMULATION
Good Sam is a partner for the 2016 Poverty Simulation at Los Altos UMC
Sun. 8/28/2016 @ 12-3 pm
Thousands of men, women, and children live in poverty in Silicon Valley, and with skyrocketing housing costs, trying to make ends meet is more stressful and elusive than ever. To gain greater insight into and compassion for the challenges they endure, sign up for the Poverty Simulation, a unique role-playing event that allows you to take a deep dive into life with a shortage of money. In this fast-paced activity, you will role-play as a member of a low-income family struggling to provide food, shelter, and other basic necessities for a month while navigating through community resources. You will also meet people who have lived in poverty and discuss opportunities to create a truly thriving community. The experience will touch you on intellectual, emotional, and spiritual levels. All high school students and adults are encouraged to attend. Please contact Pastor Dale at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.\
Stephen Ministers Care
Stephen Ministers Care When was the last time someone really listened to you? We’re talking about the undistracted, full-attention kind of listening. People need this kind of care. Sometimes it’s due to a major crisis like a death, a divorce, or cancer. Other times it’s from being overwhelmed by many small things, all at once. That’s one of the ways Stephen Ministers care for others. If you would like to have a Stephen Minister, contact Pastor Dale. Stephen Ministers care for those who are making that long journey through the valley of a life crisis. If you’re interested in serving in this way, and would like the join the Stephen Ministry team, contact Pastor Dale.
