Spiritual Care Study

Spiritual Care Study

Spiritual Care Study

This study is designed to meet the needs and interests of people for self-care and care for others. 

We will learn about spiritual care as a holistic practice that involves body, mind, and spirit. We will explore how to incorporate practices that foster spiritual care for health and well-being in relation to all aspects of our life and in relationship with God. By the end, the hope is to not only gain knowledge for self-care practices and identify needs of caregivers and care receivers, but to enjoy some time of together.

Your commitment for this study is a one hour weekly session, that runs for 4 consecutive weeks. If you are interested in a future session of this care study,  please contact the church by email or phone
