Subject: “When Helping Hurts” Sign-up Reminder
Dear Flow Ministries’ Family,
We hope this email finds you and your loved ones well.
In our last email, our new Executive Director Pastor Peter Ma expressed his desire to connect with you and included invitations to some of our upcoming opportunities. One of them is a 7-week Zoom study on Steve Corbett and Brian Fikkert’s book, When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor…and Yourself. Corbett and Fikkert’s theological framework and practical application on how to help the poor are revolutionary to our North American understanding on how to alleviate poverty. Particularly with Flow Ministries, Corbett and Fikkert’s approach is foundational to the work that we do with the neighbours at Kin Village and Trinity Square.
Regardless of whether or not you have experience with helping the poor, we highly recommend joining this study to deepen your understanding on how to reach the vulnerable for Jesus Christ. Even if you joined us last year, we welcome you back! Each session will be about an hour long led by Pastor Peter and Dr. Jess, and consists of a short video, discussion, and application—no preparation work is needed, just an open heart to learn!
The first session will begin the week of January 23 and goes weekly until the week of March 6. To better plan for when to host these sessions, we ask that you let us know your availability using this Google Form. The deadline to sign up is on Friday, January 20. If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please email Pastor Peter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Feel free to share this invitation with your family, friends, and church members! We hope y’all will join us!
Have a blessed week,
Flow Without Bounds Ministries
