Twice-monthly continuing education is one of the facets of the Stephen Ministry Stephen Ministry logo - blueprogram that ensures our lay ministers are trained to provide optimal care for their care receivers. Occasionally, our speakers present programs that have interest to the congregation at large. The first of such programs scheduled for 2017 will be held in Carpenter Chapel from 5:00- 6:00pm on Sunday, February 19.

Jim Dant will present a program that focuses on helping our SMs know “best practices” in providing care to a family member of someone who is struggling with addiction. Jim is calling his talk, That Doesn’t Look Like Ministry: Credible Family Care of Addicts and Alcoholics. Following his presentation, there will be a brief time for questions and dialogue.

Because most families in our society face this daunting issue at one time or another, we encourage your participation. Please enter through the steeple doors and join us for this important program.
