Since our Art/Craft & Bake Sale at Christmas was so successful, we would love to bring it back for Easter! The goal of this Fundraiser is to boost our general funds for the church and help meet our budget! Could everyone contribute in some way? Bake some cookies, or loaves of bread. Be creative and think of spring crafts for the home or yard. Create bouquets, etc. New ideas welcome! The sale will run three Sundays before and including Easter: March 26th, April 2nd and April 9th. If you are able to set up, organize or work the sale, please let Shirley Krenzke know, So remember - give as generously as you can in any way! Help us to keep the church programming going so we can continue to grow devoted followers of Christ and equip our leaders in service!
Wednesdays - April 12 through May 17, 9:30 a.m. to Noon
Through a contact at the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC), we have finalized plans to offer a caregiving class beginning this coming April. Here is a most recent article from their newsletter describing that class: Powerful Tools for Caregivers
Are you caring for a loved one? Are you helping a relative, neighbor, or friend with transportation, grocery shopping, housekeeping, finances, medications, or personal cares? If so, you are a caregiver.
Like many caregivers, you don’t identify as a caregiver. You identify as a son, daughter, spouse or partner, friend, or neighbor. It’s important to recognize that you are helping someone and to take care of yourself as a caregiver. Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a series of six consecutive weekly classes that can help you do just that.
This two-and-a-half-hour program is an evidence-based workshop for caregivers of older adults. The workshop helps you take better care of yourself while caring for your loved one. By taking care of yourself, you are better equipped to provide care. Topics addressed include time management, goal setting, problem solving, caregiving transitions, effective communication, community resources, improved emotional well-being, and reducing stress, guilt, depression, and anger.
Classes will be held April 12-May 17 from 9:30 am to 12 noon in the Wesley room right here at our church! The suggested donation for the class is $20 which includes the book, “The Caregiver Helpbook”. With advance notice respite care is available upon request. To register for the workshop, please call Kari Dombrowski at 262-284-8120. Last day to register is Monday, April 10.
