There will be a very important community training seminar in Starkville one week from today.
Attendance from West Pointâ€™s community leaders could lead to a significant impact on poverty and the townâ€™s economy.
â€śBridges out of Povertyâ€ť is an organization that has taught communities that benefits and effectiveness of empowering those in poverty rather than just writing checks to different charities.
Lynn Phillips-Gaines spoke to the West Point Rotary Club last week about the â€śBridgesâ€ť program and the impact it has had on Starkville.
Jeanette Unger was in charge of the Wednesdayâ€™s program at the West Point Civitan Luncheon Club. February is Clergy Month for the Civitan Clubs. She presented Rev. Steve Davis, pastor of 1st Presbyterian Church FPC., and his wife Sharon.
â€śI had a completely different idea of what to talk about when I got here today but the Civitan Creed made me rethink what I wanted to say,â€ť explained Davis. â€śSometimes we just need to be willing to go in the direction we are led. You are one of the few groups who I feel truly are led by the idea of Christian love and service.â€ť
