MEMORY LOSS CAREGIVERS' SUPPORT
Memory loss is a thief. Persons experiencing memory loss are robbed of lifelong capabilities, of their self-confidence, of good decision making, and eventually they are robbed of the interactions and memories they have cherished. Caregivers of a person with memory loss also are also victims of this thief. Their loved one’s memory loss robs the caregiver of their relationship and their roles in that relationship. Memory loss steals meaningful conversations and experiences. In its wake, the thief of memory loss leaves the caregiver with overwhelming responsibilities and often isolation. How can we defend against this thief? 

If you are a caregiver for someone who has memory loss, join us in the Adult Room on Monday, July 15 at 10:30am. We share solutions, challenges, and suggestions as we realize how we can help one another learn how to live with and to love the person with memory loss.
VALLEY INTERFAITH PROJECT
We host the Valley Interfaith Project Justice Reform Team on Monday, July 15 @ 6:30pm in the Adult Room.
The issues surrounding prison and criminal justice likely impact more parts of our society than most understand - poverty, families, children with grandparents or foster care, education, drug and mental health, jobs, housing. Join us to hear of the work of so many and share your experiences and concerns.
CHURCH & SOCIETY
Dayspring Church & Society Team meets on Tuesday, July 16 at 5:30 in the Adult Room to address urgent summer needs in the community and plan our upcoming fall events, all in the name of social justice: Asylum needs, paths out of poverty, leading with a common vision of God’s kingdom and Kingdom dinners to foster our work. Everyone passionate about these topics - and others - are welcome to join the meeting.
