Join the Adult Faith in Action class beginning on Sunday, July 11th at 10am as we begin a series on our faith and homelessness. As homelessness has become more and more of a hot-topic throughout the city, we will gather together on Sunday mornings for this 4-week series to prayerfully and faithfully consider how we are called to respond. This series will include guest speakers from non-profits as well as the Travis County Commissioner, Ann Howard, and will create space for open discussion about how we can faithfully respond to homelessness in the city along with other chances to learn, reflect, and act in response to homelessness. All are welcome, we will meet in the Upper Room at 10am starting on 7/11. Contact [email protected] if you have any questions.

For the first session, we will have a short bible study regarding the matter of homelessness in scripture to orient the work we do in the other sessions. We will also have a short teaching time by Cecie about the rise of homelessness in Austin as well as the history of homelessness in the city. These will help us come up with some centering questions we can curate for guest speakers who engage with people experiencing homelessness in efforts to provide housing, access to water, food, clothes, work, and more.
