Pastoral Care and Communities
We want to be able to offer care and support to our members and friends in times of joy and struggle. This interactive and engaging workshop will focus on the practical skills for pastoral care in congregational life. Specific focus will be given to grief, death and dying, chronic illness, and questioning of that which makes meaning and purpose in our lives (what some call spiritual). A small portion of the day will look at ways congregations structure pastoral care responses with an emphasis on community collaboration. This program is designed for smaller congregations both lay and professional led/supported.
Registration is free, however, registering helps us know how many to prepare for.
