Union Baptist will host “The Compassion Experience,” an interactive, immersive display that allows individuals to experience global poverty without leaving home, April 28 – May 1.

This free event features a journey through the true stories of children living in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic. In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets and schools — without getting on a plane. Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope.

The exhibit will be set-up in the parking lot of Union Baptist Church.  In the span of less than 30 minutes, visitors will travel with a child from hardship to hope.  An eye-opening experience challenges personal views of poverty, transforms the understanding of the world, and moves one to be the change for a child who lives in extreme poverty.

Baptist Missionaries will display some of the pillowcase dresses that they have sewn.  Currently they have over 100 dresses of the 300 they plan to send to African countries. They will also have sewing machines set-up to show others how to construct the dresses and invite the community to join their efforts.

Union Baptist is located at 1200 N. Trade Street. Bishop Sir Walter Mack Jr. is pastor and teacher.  For more information, please call 336-724-9305 and visit “The Compassion Experience” website:
