Community of Hope Training begins in September

Community-of-Hope onlyIs God calling you to be a lay chaplain?

Do you want to deepen your relationship with God? Do you want to acquire the skills needed to handle different life situations in your every day journey?

Then, the Community of Hope may be for you! In addition to providing 42 hours of training to equip laypersons to serve in pastoral care ministry as Lay Chaplains, the Community of Hope offers a journey into wholeness through spiritual growth opportunities in a community shaped by prayer and Benedictine spirituality.

At Christ the King Lutheran Church, we have trained over 70 Community of Hope Lay Chaplains (both members of our congregation and from other congregations) who live out their call to be “holy listeners” in many different settings: in their families, their workplaces, their neighborhoods, hospitals, nursing homes, hospice, and within the congregation. You are invited to consider becoming a part of our Community of Hope.

Classes will be offered this fall on Monday evenings, September 8 through December 1. Class size is limited. Registration deadline is July 31. For more information or to receive an application, contact Beverly Davis
