First Baptist hosts Parent University’s interactive poverty workshop

HUNTERSVILLE – First Baptist Church will host an interactive workshop Feb. 28 to help people better understand how to meet the needs of low-income families and those struggling with language barriers.

The workshop begins at 6 p.m. Feb. 28 at the church, 119 N. Old Statesville Road, Huntersville.
