KFC Celebrated Valentine’s Day at The Forum Assisted Living

By | Community, Kids for Christ | No Comments

The weather this past Sunday might have been cloudy & misty, but the spirit of our KFC kids was full of sunshine!! We had 13 of our Kids for Christ (3rd-5th grade) kids gather and share a warm meal together, while they made sweet Valentine cards for the residents at The Forum Assisted Living. Afterwards, a group of parents drove the kids down to The Forum, where we all shared a heartwarming afternoon playing Bingo with some very grateful & joyful residents!

It was amazing to see the love in the hearts of the kids & residents as they interacted with one another.

One resident, Ms. Scott, didn’t have plans to play Bingo that afternoon, but came down only after being told that her young friend Ella Holbrook was there, hoping to spend the time with her! Friendships were reunited and new bonds were made that afternoon, making it a wonderful day that both the kids of KFC and the residents at The Forum will always remember!

A HUGE thank you to Violet Hutcheson, Sandra Goodwin, Cari Holbrook, Caanan Blake, and Justin Howe for helping to prepare the lunch, oversee the valentine making and transporting the kids to The Forum! We could not have done this without you!!

Community of Hope Training Feb. 9

By | Community | No Comments

The 3rd training class for the Community of Hope Lay Chaplains at St. George will begin February 9. This is a 14-week study to help equip lay people to serve in all forms of pastoral care — when a person is being “present” in a listening, compassionate, non-controlling manner to an individual or group for the purpose of representing God to them.

More information about Community of Hope can be found at http://www.cohinternational.org/.

If you feel you are being called to this ministry, there is still time to enroll. Please call or email Marilynne Herbster (mherbster@saintgeorgechurch.org).
