What God Requires of Us – Combating Poverty by Empowering the Impoverished

Join Southminster Presbyterian of Arlington Heights as we learn how scripture calls on us to care for those living in poverty, and not just by having mercy, but by recognizing the need to put our faith into action and empower the poor. Through powerful testimonies and policy presentations from advocacy organizations, we will learn how people of faith, together, can stand up and call for the creation of a pathway out of poverty for families and enable society to reach its fullest potential and strive to be a more Beloved Community. This Class will be led by Pastor Matt Gearke and Jesse Rojo an organizer with COFI – Community Organizing and Family Issues.

This series will be offered on Wednesday Evenings, September 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th at 7:00 pm – It will be offered In Person and on zoom. Here is the zoom link for this class:

SIMON PETER: An Imperfect Disciple

Peter, the disciple, is mentioned more times than all the other disciples combined. He showed inspired moments of leadership and wisdom, while at other times, he showed ignorance and cowardice. Adam Hamilton (pastor and author) will share his insights into Peter from his book, “Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple”. During this six-week study, we will learn how Jesus saw greatness in this imperfect fisherman and found ways to overcome his shortcomings. We will also learn how Jesus can use our humble abilities, as part of his church, to further his kingdom.

Each week, a 20-minutes video supplements this interesting topic, followed by discussion points. Please join us on Tuesday evenings via Zoom, from 7:00 to 8:15 PM, starting on October 5th.
