Christian Caregiving Course

Trinity ELC will offer a course called “Christian Caregiving – a Way of Life” beginning Wednesday September 13, 2017. The 10-week course will explore caring for one another and how it can be uniquely Christian. Participants will practice caring skills and learn how to make distinctively Christian caring and relating a way of life.

The course at Trinity ELC will emphasize practical application of caring skills to special situations and everyday relationships.

The course includes such topics as:

  • God as the Curegiver
  • Move Over, Freud!
  • Ministering to the Whole Person
  • A Surprise Gift: Forgiveness

Beginning on September 13, 2017, the class will meet ten Wednesday evenings between September 13 and November 29.
