The topic for April’s Lunch and Learn was Caring For Caregivers
Odds are high there are families in your church dealing with long term and/or terminal illness. Maintaining an awareness of who these people are; becoming sensitive to the lifestyle and needs of these families is critical for the church to be the church and this Learning Lunch focused on these pastoral responsibilities. Hospice Care Chaplain, Bob Keller and “care-giver” Doug Ebert led our discussion.
The group discussed how we as a church need to be aware of the needs of folks in our body and brainstormed ideas about how we might be able to meet those needs. Many thanks to Family Dispatch Church, who hosted us and provided an excellent lunch!
