More than 16 million Americans provide unpaid care for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. An estimated 5.8 million Americans live with Alzheimer’s and that number is climbing. What can churches do to be more welcoming of those with dementia? How can churches equip caregivers? Are you interested in learning more about dementia and relating better to individuals with dementia?
The Dementia and the Church webinars continue with four webinars to explore these questions. You may watch any of the four webinars from your own computer by registering on this link: https://www.umcdiscipleship.org/articles/webinar-series-dementia-and-the-church OR watch them in a socially-distanced groups in the Narthex on the dates/times they are scheduled. The four webinars from this past winter are also available for viewing through this link.
The Wired Word lessons link two current events with relevant scripture and discussion questions. The Wired Word provides great thought-provoking reading for individuals and/or small groups. The Wired Word class meets socially distanced Sunday at 10:45 am in the Fireside Room. John Rahn is the leader.
Contact the church office with your current email address at firstname.lastname@example.org or 262-5970 if you’d like to receive these lessons. You do not need to be a part of the group to receive these lessons.
YOUth gather Sunday mornings to connect with one another and talk about Bob Goff’s new book, Dream Big.
Bob shares entertaining stories that will help you to find and reach your biggest dreams. We also spend time sharing life’s highs and lows and support one another during this crazy time.
No need to get up early… We’ll have simple breakfast foods available (i.e. granola bars, muffins, juice).
Start Sundays off right!
