At 6pm on Monday April 16th Bethel’s World Missions Team will be screen a documentary entitled “Poverty Inc.” You are invited to watch and then discuss this critically acclaimed, award-winning documentary. This documentary, which features the work of CRC-affiliated “Partners World Wide”, explores the modern poverty industry. It asks questions like “Is what we are doing in the west to alleviate poverty around the world actually working?” and “Who profits the most from our efforts?” It effectively and provocatively presents a new empowering paradigm for missions work and relief work, which does not create a culture of dependency or paternalism.
The documentary “Poverty Inc.”, along with the book “When Helping Hurts” have been critical in bringing Bethel’s World Missions Vision to where it is today. Before the movie, at 6pm, you are invited to join us for a spaghetti dinner. It has a suggested donation of $25 and all proceeds go towards this years El Salvador trip. Our missionary from El Salvador, Roland Vanderburg will be leading a discussion after the movie.
If you have any interest in missions, in helping the world’s most vulnerable people, or just want to be part of an evening with good food and conversation – you do not want to miss it!
Come here for news on what is happening in Bethel Church from our Pastors.
