I encourage you to join the Opportunity House committee and experience the gratification of providing and serving a warm meal to some of the needy people in the Reading area.
This fall, the Nurture Committee is presenting a program entitled: “A Long Goodbye”. In the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, the “preacher” proclaims that there is “a time or season for every matter under heaven,” including “a time to be born and a time to die.” The last years or months of life can be a trying time for all. This program is designed to help us navigate the season of mourning and death. Presentation and discussion topics will include: the meaning of life and death, quality of life and end of life choices, care giving, hospice and palliative care, writing a will, choosing an executor & power of attorney, making pre-funeral arrangements, and coping with death as a family.
During the month of November, our program on navigating the season of mourning and death continues on Sunday afternoons, 3-4:30 pm, in Memorial Hall. Our Remaining topics include: “How to Write a Will, Choosing an Executor & Power of Attorney, making Pre-Funeral Arrangements,” and “Coping as a Family with the Death of a Loved One.” Whether or not you have attended any of the programs to date, all are welcome!
This program will take place on Sunday afternoons from 3-4:30 pm at the church, from October 12–November 16. If you would like more information, please contact Pastor Dave.
