Sunday, October 29, 2017, Noon. Bring a bagged lunch, snacks will be provided.
This worship is called, “There, Care & Prayer: The Art of Visiting the Sick.”
Nobody enjoys being sick, but most of us will be sick at some point in our lives and many will spend time in the hospital. Being sick often brings a sense of fear, loneliness, and isolation; but as Christian visitors we can help soothe those feelings.
Whether thinking about visiting the sick makes you nervous, or you are super confidant about visiting, please join us at this afternoon workshop to learn how we can journey alongside those who are sick with compassion.
Together, we will explore the goal of visiting, how to prepare for a visit, and how to listen with wisdom, discretion and sensitivity. We’ll cover some practical do’s and don’ts about visiting with grace.
And we’ll provide you with a few tools for your visiting toolbox
