Caring PartnersAre YOU going through a difficult time in your life right now. . . divorce, illness, caring for someone who is chronically ill, addictions, difficulties with a child, are you a new parent?
A Caring Partner can be important support for you.
A Caring Partner is a member of the church that meets with a person on a regular basis to offer a listening ear, kindness, light heartedness, understanding, and to reflect God’s comfort in a practical way. Caring Partners participate in an intensive and exciting training program focused on preparing the individual to share God's love with those in need. A Caring Partner is NOT a licensed social worker or counselor. If you are in need of more professional guidance, we can make referrals for those needs.
If you are interested in having a Caring Partner, please connect with Pastor Sharon Rogers for additional information.
Becoming a Caring Partner
Do people say you are easy to talk with? Do you want to do something that makes a difference in someone’s life?
Caring Partners is a way for lay people (a church term for anyone in the church besides the offical pastoral staff) to give comfort to others experiencing the challenges of life. As a Caring Partner, you receive extensive inital training, and then ongoing growth sessions as Caring Partners meet regularly to for networking and support.
“The training was so good! The skills I learned have helped me talk with my spouse and my kids. I did not know that I would benefit from it so much personally." ~ a Caring Partner.
