Is Your Church 'Walking With the Poor'? Add to ACS Display

May 27, 2010

The Conference Committee on Children and Poverty invites you to prepare a visual display (one per church) exhibiting the ways your congregation is walking with the poor. It will become part of a larger display at Annual Conference Session.

Each year CCCP looks for ways to highlight the work of congregations which are effectively walking with the poor – something which goes beyond writing checks or sending kits (though these are important), and extends to working in partnership with the poor in your area.
The display should take the form of a poster or two-dimensional collage which can be exhibited in the main meeting space for ACS (Halls A and B at the Sacramento Convention Center). Posters should be mounted on 20" x 30" foam board and positioned "landscape" style (horizontal). Please include a wire on the back of your display so that it can be hung.
All congregations which submit posters will receive a monetary award – the amount to be determined, based on the number of entries.
Please notify CCCP by Saturday, May 29 that you plan to submit a poster, in order to allow the committee time to plan the exhibit and ensure there is enough space for everyone.
CCCP must hear from you in advance in order to include your church's work in the display.
Once you have confirmed your participation, please deliver your poster as early as possible on the first day of ACS, Wednesday, June 16.
