Month: September 2016

Spreading Awareness, Reducing Stigma! MIAW 2016 is October 2nd – 8th

During this Sunday’s (Oct. 2nd) morning worship hour, our message will be brought by Russ Sanche, Youth Outreach Coordinator from The PORTAL.
Next week – October 2nd to 8th is Mental Illness Awareness Week (MIAW), an annual national public education campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness.

So the theme of Russ’s message is “Walking Beside”, helping us understand our role and our posture, when to give, when to speak, how to let go and love people where they are at. He will be bringing real stories from real people in our community. Check the link below for resource information on Mental Health here in Nova Scotia:

Advanced Care Planning Presentation

8 out of 10 Canadians have never heard of Advance Care Planning. ACP is a process of reflecting on and communicating your wishes for end of life care with your family, friends and health team. Most families don’t know their loved one’s wishes — and may have some very difficult decisions to make if you aren’t able to speak for yourself due to illness or injury. Having discussions and recording your wishes is a priceless gift you can give your loved ones.  A lawyer is not required to fill out the forms which express your personal wishes. Learn more at this free presentation on Monday Oct. 17 from 7-9 pm at the church and don’t forget to register to guarantee a seat and sufficient resources. Call 902.678.6755 or sign one of the sheets found in the Church foyer by Oct. 14.
