NEW: CAREGIVER PRAYER MINISTRY
Caregiving can be exhausting and overwhelming; caregivers can harbor internal anger, become socially withdrawn, or suffer from anxiety or depression. If you feel the Lord calling you to help, be on our team and support a caregiver with daily prayer for a year. Contact Marilyn Fleming, RN, parish nurse firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUPPORT FOSTER KIDS DURING STRESSFUL TIMES
Union Gospel Mission, our long-time partner, has requested support for Office Moms & Dads (OMD, www.officemomsanddads.com). OMD’s volunteers sit with, talk to, and entertain foster kids during the day while their caseworkers find them homes. Want to help? Times are flexible to meet your schedule. A background check and 1.5 hours of training are required. Training is Wednesday, October 18, 10-11:30am. Contact Janine Krebs (WestSeattleOMD@gmail.com).
Circle Lydia will meet in the home of Madeline May, 2226 45th Ave SW, on Thursday, October 12 at 10:30am. Please note change of day and time! Info? Contact Madeline in the church office.
Circle Mary will continue to meet at Vicky Alspaugh’s (Brookdale Heights) starting Wednesday, October 11 at 10:00am.
