Does the work at your church or service organization make you feel like you are handing out fish, when what you really want is to teach fishing lessons?
Then this seminar is for you.
Rutherford County UT-TSU Extension, Olive Branch and First Baptist Murfreesboro Churches are hosting a one day workshop on Thursday, March 6 2014 at Lane Agri-Park Community Center Building located at 315 John R. Rice Blvd. in Murfreesboro.
The workshop is designed to help faith leaders, benevolence teams, social service providers, educators, and community help providers learn new skills and resources for helping those in our community who are experiencing financial crisis.
Cost of the workshop is $10, which includes free resource materials and lunch. Please call (615) 898-7710 to reserve your place.
Churches and service organizations are often the first point of contact for people experiencing any kind of crisis – even financial crisis. As a church or faith based organization, you may provide emergency food, clothing and financial assistance to those in the community who request your help. And with the economic downturn of the last few years, we may find that we have increasing requests for help within our own congregation or religious community.
This seminar will equip you to assist those in financial crisis for the long term with resources from educational, community and faith-based agencies.
For more information, contact Pat Whitaker, extension agent firstname.lastname@example.org or Misty Layne-Watkins email@example.com or call the Extension Office at (615) 898-7710.
