Dear Professional Church Workers:

You are learning much, being challenged, and grappling with how to navigate ministry during these days of the coronavirus. In the midst of these long and, perhaps, trying days, remember to take time for self care as you care for those you serve.

Lutheran Counseling Services is offering free virtual support groups for the next 5 weeks. (They began this week, so 4 weeks to go.)
  • Anxiety Support Group
  • Teacher Support Group
  • Clergy Support Group
These may be of interest to you or others on your staff. Please share this information.

God's peace and blessings be with you as you serve in His people!

In Christ,

Daisy Olmstead

"What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ-the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith." (Philippians 3:8-9)
