This Sunday, August 28, at 10:10 a.m., our adult Sunday School classes will kick off the year in a combined class in Child Hall to hear from representatives from First Step Staffing, the beneficiary of the 2017 Cathedral Antiques Show. The Dean’s Forum and Old Fashioned Sunday School will combine for this presentation; all are welcome to join! First Step Staffing will give a presentation on “A Person—A Job—A Step,” including discussion of poverty and homelessness in Atlanta.
First Step Staffing works “to secure sustainable income for individuals transitioning from homelessness” because “steady and sustainable income is the only permanent, reliable path out of homelessness” (from firststepstaffing.com).
The Cathedral Antiques Show is a festival of art, antiques, and floral and interior design held annually to benefit a designated charity. Held annually in February, the Show is a major outreach project sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and support from the church, antiques dealers, corporate sponsors, patrons, and the community, the Antiques Show has raised more than $5 million for Atlanta-area non-profits since its inception in 1969.
