Pastoral Care System

Creating A Pastoral Care ProgramHow does a small congregation create a system for meeting the needs of its members at times such as illness, family emergency or death?  This webinar will discuss how to move beyond "I'll cook dinner for someone who is my friend" to "As a representative of our congregation, I'll cook dinner for a member who's in need of our congregation's care."  Practical ideas will be shared.  Facilitator: Nancy Heege, Congregational Life Consultant.
