Pressure Points | “Schools and the City: A conversation about educating our own and ‘Other People’s’ children”
Join us at Digital Harbor High School (1100 Covington St. 21230) for a City-Wide Conversation. Friday, September 21st | 7:00pm – 9:15pm
Few subjects generate a wider range of opinions than the task of educating our children. In Baltimore City and across the nation, schools, teachers, and student outcomes undergo constant evaluation and critique.
This GraceCity-sponsored Pressure Points event will facilitate dialogue around the complex topic of education. A diverse group of researchers and advocates, former city schools students, and parents will share their varied perspectives and experiences of education in Baltimore. Together we’ll examine the role of public education, challenges facing schools and students, how those challenges might be addressed, and the role we as community members, students, parents, and educators play.
We hope you’ll join us for an interactive evening that will include panel discussions, plenty of Q&A, and space to reflect on the complex array of issues shaping the education of Baltimore’s children.
All are welcome and invited!
When Helping Hurts: The Small Group Experience is a six week small group video study produced by the Chalmers Center based on the book of the same name. For Growing in Grace, the class will include two additional weeks for a total of eight classes in order to incorporate Q&A time with GraceCity’s service arenas.
When Helping Hurts redefines poverty and poverty alleviation in a way that gives value to the one being served and reduces the superiority complex of the one serving. While it focuses on serving the majority world, the study’s concepts are equally applicable to work being done in GraceCity’s service arenas.
For more information on this class that launches September 23rd, 8:45am at Digital Harbor High School contact Allan McBride.
The GraceCity’s Men’s Ministry is getting back into the action. With a defined mission for growing mature accountable and noble men who intentionally impact their community with god’s love. There will be two ways to engage in this ministry. First they are bringing back their weekly Wednesday morning meet ups at Kobe Cafe (644 E. Fort Ave.) from 7am-8am. They will also gather the 1st and 4th Sunday of every month at Digital Harbor High School before service from 8:50am-9:40am. For more details you can contact Pastor Corey or Jamon Bailey.
And last but not least please lift up all the Women who are attending the Women’s Retreat 9/28-9/30. We hope Jesus meets them where they need to be met.
