ARE THERE PEOPLE MISSING FROM YOUR PEWS? Families providing round-the-clock care for a loved one often can’t get to church without your help. They need a break. They need volunteer respite care support.
Voice of Care is equipping people to become Certified Trainers in the Lutheran REST (Respite Education and Support Tools) training program. Certified Trainers educate volunteers to become Respite Companions. The course is being run as a weekend retreat to accommodate people who work full time. It will be start at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 11, and continue through noon on Sunday, October 13, 2019, at Walcamp Outdoor Ministry in Kingston IL.
