Congregational Care Ministers Training
April 21-23

At Edenton Street, we have a plan for caring for those in our community that involves our 6 ordained ministers, our Stephen Ministers, and our Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs). As CCMs, we work in the community to provide care that ranges from hospital and senior living visits to hospitality for weddings and funerals. We also offer classes for the community on Grief, Depression, Anxiety, and Divorce Care in order to provide people with a system of support and love through some of life’s greatest challenges. It is a true joy to care for God’s people in this way. Training to become a CCM will happen in a weekend conference here at Edenton Street. The training will be split into nine sessions over three days and will provide you with the tools necessary to take part in this incredible opportunity. We ask that you prayerfully consider serving God and the community in this way. Please contact Diane Amidon by phone or e-mail if you are interested in attending the training or have any questions. The dream to see our group of Congregational Care Ministers is alive and well at Edenton Street and we would love for you to join us!

Schedule: Friday: Session begins at 5:30 PM  ||  Saturday: 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM (Lunch is provided)  || Sunday: 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
