This is an advanced class focused on congregational laity supporting their pastor in the caregiving role.  You will learn to use pastoral tools of prayer, Scripture, and Eucharist while enhancing your personal gifts in caring, compassion and listening skills.  This course will offer insights into the life span and dynamics of contemporary life to help church leaders reach out with God's love and care to others.  This class will be led by Rev. Sarah Fotopulos.

Please know that all classes require a total of ten (10) hours of participation.  We have allotted 2-1/2 hrs for you to read and comprehend the book "Lay Pastoral Care Giving" by Tim Farabaugh (book should be purchased and read ahead of time); the class time on Saturday, 09/18/21 will begin at 9 AM and concludes at 3 PM for 5 hrs of participation; and the final 2-1/2 hrs are allotted for your written summary on the course including your action plan of using what you have learned from the course.  Failure to read the book, attend class, and/or complete the action plan will prevent credit for the course.

This class may be attended in-person OR virtually through ZOOM.  Please indicate your choice in the registration process.
