Sundays, March 8-29
The purpose of the training is to equip lay members to serve as Caring Connection Ministers (CCMs) to the membership at Grace. Their ministry may involve: one time hospital visits, on-going visits with persons in senior care facilities, limited time visits to persons in transition, home visits to “shut-ins.” This training will enable lay persons to use their gifts for the benefit of the Body of Christ and for their own spiritual growth. Workshop subjects include: Prayer and Listening Skills; Methodist 101; Boundaries; Ministry to the Frail and Elderly. CCMs supplement pastoral care to the congregation and meet with the Pastoral Care Associate for support every 6 weeks.
