you are invited
Join us at our next quarterly FCS Open House October 25 and 26, 2012 at FCS (Focused Community Strategies). Hear the story and strategy of FCS from Dr. Bob Lupton, Rev. Leroy Barber and Katie Delp, along with various FCS directors and staff. Experience the neighborhood where FCS is currently giving energy in historic South Atlanta, and enjoy breakout dialogues focused on specific issues.
What does it mean to participate in transforming a distressed neighborhood? Are you doing more harm than good? Are we asking the right questions? FCS Urban Ministries celebrates 30 years of learning in the heart of urban Atlanta. Hear the story of FCS from Dr. Bob Lupton, and discover how questions shape neighborhood action. Hear from FCS directors and staff about ways to collaborate, cut costs and join God in the city. As an urban collective, FCS currently has thirteen diverse groups working together within one distressed, yet beautiful neighborhood to bring about God’s Shalom. Bring your questions. Let’s learn together.
