A Visitation Training Event for Hospital and Friends at Home Visitation Teams, Stephen Ministers and Leaders, and Pastoral Care Team Members will be held on Thursday October 9 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 67 at the church.
All of you are invited to attend this special continuing education event led by Presbyterian minister Rebecca Spooner. Rebecca is also a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). In 2013, she established the Wellspring Renewal Center, with a vision for creating a welcoming, safe space where healing happens. She believes in honest, authentic communication and using evidence-based treatments to provide the best care possible. Rebecca works well with all populations and issues; especially depression and anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and childhood sexual abuse. “Counseling (both as a client and psychotherapist) has freed me to be a happier, more liberated individual; and it is a gift to facilitate that same hope and healing with others.”
Rebecca will give us valuable information on how to be aware of who we are as caregivers, how to create a space for the Holy Spirit in our visits, and how to establish an unconditional positive regard for those we visit. She will join us for an hour of teaching and discussion. Please let us know if you will be able to join us for this wonderful learning opportunity afforded by the Pastoral Care Ministry. Call the church office or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
