Community First: A Home for the Homeless 

This documentary tells a story of shifting mindsets to address homelessness based on core values of relationships vs transactional and human-centered vs needs/program-centered approaches. Often times people experience homelessness - be it family homelessness or chronic homelessness – are excluded from the conversation of the causes, impact and lasting solutions.

The documentary “…it tells a compelling story with empathy and compassion, more importantly it will inspire people to make tangible positive changes in their own communities.”
-Kelly DeVine, Artistic Director Global Peace Film Festival

Join us at this documentary’s viewing sponsored by St. Luke’s United Methodist Church and a conversation with the director, Layton Blaylock who says, "It pains me to see a fellow human being in such despair. I am utterly confused how this can happen on such a grand scale in the richest country on the planet. How can this be? How can we let this continue?” Come to be inspired and challenged.

Date: Thursday, March 26, 2020

Time: 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (lunch provided)

Location: St. Luke's UMC, Building C, Founder's Hall

Fee: $25.00 per person (lunch provided)

Thank you for considering a ZOE Mission Experience to Rwanda!

Experience child-led community transformation through empowerment model program for vulnerable and orphan children. This ministry is Restoring Hope in Africa.

A ZOE Trip will provide you with the experience of a lifetime! You will meet the in-country staff members and the incredible young people who are being empowered to move beyond charity. You will see and experience how the ZOE model is changing lives socially, economically, and spiritually.

On a trip, you will visit with and learn from young people who are engaged in each stage of the ZOE program. You will be inspired and challenged to embrace forgiveness and reconciliation from the stories of the children who willingly give their "first harvest" to people in the community who might have hurt and abused them.

When traveling with ZOE, you will encounter heartache and joy, tears and laughter, desperation and dancing, sadness and singing — and you will return home with renewed hope as you are inspired by the stories of the young people who are moving from poverty to self-sustainability.

Total cost of the trip is $1250 plus airfare

Registration deadline:

Friday, March 20. Deposit of $500 due at that time.

Payment Schedule

March 20                              $500
