May Network Seminar: Q and A on Member Care

A s we draw to a close another year of Network Meetings, we would like to spend this meeting having an open discussion on questions that you might have regarding member care.  In light of the April Global Member Care Conference, there may have been questions that were generated from that conference.   The Network Meeting might be a good place to understand better  and process a concept brought up during the conference,  so we invite you to this informal meeting regarding issues in the realm of member care.  If you have specific questions, please send them to before the meeting so we could give your question some consideration prior to the meeting.
May 8, 1:00 to  3:00 pm  at The Well Member Care Center

Retreat Day: Praying Our Goodbyes 

Step out of the rush for a few hours and have some quality time with God.  This day will provide you with space to ponder and process with God your unique goodbyes and transitions.  This could be a recent or upcoming change of location, a job change, the death of a loved one, an extended illness, the end of a friendship, a mid-life crisis etc. The majority of the day is for you to spend with God in quiet - we provide the space (indoors and out), and plenty of resources and practical ideas.  For those new to silent retreats, we hope this will be a gentle introduction for you.  Many have commented that although they felt a bit unsure beforehand, they were really glad to have made the space and time to spend with God.  The day is limited to 18 participants. Presented by Peter and Kerryn Christensen  :: Register :: Ask for more info ::   Read more>>>
