Let’s Have Brunch and Talk about Death:
A Workshop about Preparing, Caring, and Sharing
Saturday, April 12, 9:30 am – 12:00 pm, Hospitality Suite
In his last breath, John Wesley lifted his arms and said, “The best of all is, God is with us,” and like Wesley, we trust in God’s abiding presence throughout our lives and into the next. Yet, whether thinking about our own wishes or considering the best options for loved ones, we know that decisions and planning related to care at the end of life can be stressful and difficult. Join people of all ages as we explore ways to honor this holy time in our own lives and in the lives of those we love.
To request pastoral care during weekdays, call the church offices at 404.266.2373. To request pastoral care after 5:00 pm or on weekends, call our Pastoral Care Emergency Line at 404.419.7591 for a minister on call. If you would like to add a name to the Pastoral Care & Concerns list of hospitalizations, births, or those bereaved, please contact Karla Daniel at 404.240.8207 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Homebound Visitation Ministry
Through the PRUMC Homebound Visitation Ministry, individuals, families, small groups and Sunday School classes provide support for members who cannot come to church – many of whom you may already know!

Stephen Ministry equips lay persons to provide one-on-one Christian care to anyone experiencing life crises such as hospitalization, grief, loss, disability, divorce, spiritual crisis, or other life transitions. Stephen Ministers can help bring individuals in these times of need to a closer understanding of God’s presence and peace. If you or someone you know needs a Stephen Minister, please contact Karla Otroszko, Minister of Pastoral Care at 404.240.8270 or email@example.com for a confidential discussion of the need.
