How is it possible for good people to disagree strongly on major topics? Why do we primarily associate with people we agree with and what are the ramifications of doing so? And what was it that really got Jesus killed?
Our first event in our new space! We believe everyone is looking for a place to belong and a cause to be a part of. We aspire to create a place to do both. Hear how we hope our new space will help us do just that.
We were joined by REST | Real Escape from the Sex Trade. We first learned more about sex trade and then we actually got an opportunity to help. Each person chipped in $20 and we paid for and assembled 60 Survivor Kits (leggings, socks, tops, pajamas, hygiene kits) for women that had been exploited and needed the kits immediately.
On our 1st anniversary for every person that showed up we donated $10 to the organizations that we worked with in year one of Bar Church. People came to celebrate — then they chipped in and we ended up with over $2500 for organizations we worked with in our first year. Not one big gift, simply people doing their part.
