going deeper

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 40 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.
