Peace and Possibilities: Practical Preparation for End of Life
Death, a difficult subject to consider, may be even more difficult to discuss with our family and loved ones. Planning can be a time of personal spiritual growth, as well as a gift of love for those you love. To assist in preparation, Second Presbyterian Church provides a booklet for church members entitled, Peace and Possibilities: Practical Preparation for End of Life.
Pastors Steve Hancock and Karen Akin will lead a class with the same name as the booklet during Sunday School on February 16 and 23, March 2 and 9. Karen will begin the conversation by leading a discussion on what Presbyterians believe about death and resurrection, as well as give an overview of the booklet. Steve will talk from a Pastor’s perspective about the challenges and opportunities in planning a service of Witness to the Resurrection. Professionals in the fields of estate planning and mortuary services will also share practical information helpful for consideration.
The Pastoral Care and Planned Giving Ministries of our church have produced the booklet, which is available for all church members, whether or not you are able to attend the class.
Following is the class schedule:
February 16 – Karen Akin will lead the class entitled, What Presbyterians Believe and Why Planning is Important;
February 23 – Steve Hancock will lead the class entitled, From a Pastor’s Perspective: Challenges and Opportunities in Planning A Service of Witness to the Resurrection;
March 2 – Rebecca Winburn will lead the class entitled, Estate Planning – What will be helpful for your heirs;
March 9 – Blake Ruff from Ruff Mortuary Service will lead the class entitled, Funeral Home Logistics.
