Addressing Poverty in Our World – Circles for Change

Our Serve Others Focus for February is our new ministry – Circles for Change.  It kicks off this month.  The mission of Circles for Change is to empower people to chart their own course out of poverty and towards sustainable self-sufficiency.

While Asbury UMC is sponsoring the startup of this new initiative, it will be a joint effort between the faith community, social service agencies and local government. Participants are motivated individuals who want the support to make lasting change.

Learn more by talking with Shana Peet, the program director or Pastor Kim.  Consider volunteering as an Ally (someone who offers an ongoing relationship of encouragement and support).  We also need people to sponsor participants ($600), to share your unique skills with participants (such as budgeting or financial planning) or to help with tutoring and childcare during the weekly meetings.
