Understanding Poverty Workshop

The Vulnerable Children's Ministry

Presents a Workshop
“Understanding Poverty”
With Guest Speaker Lynn Clay, Certified Poverty Trainer
Wednesday, March 25, 2015
Willow Creek Community Church
67 E. Algonquin Road, So. Barrington, IL
(Room B204/206 near the chapel)
Caring for those who come from a background of poverty can be confusing and complicated. We can do a lot of damage by assuming everyone should be “like us.” Sometimes an attempt to help can cause harm to the very people we wish to serve. This workshop will help us learn how to step into relationships with people who have a different way of approaching life, as well as teach us how to maneuver between the two worlds. 
This workshop is designed for:
·         Adoptive Families
·         Foster Care Families
·         Safe Families Hosts
·         Those involved in orphan care
·         Those who care about vulnerable children
6:00 Dinner together (Atrium)
7:00 Worship service (Lakeside Auditorium)
7:30 Workshop (room B204/206)
Please register for the workshop at

Childcare is available with Midweek for Kids (ages 0-5 years).

Suggested book of the month: When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett & Brian Fikkert
