“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
HAVE THE CONVERSATION: Advance Care Planning”

It is never too early and you are never too young to start thinking about making choices in a God pleasing, life respecting way. St. Peter is offering you an opportunity to learn more about healthcare options, “having the conversation” with your family members, and the process of choosing a Patient Advocate should you be unable to communicate your wishes. Give your family the priceless gift of an Advance Directive for Medical Care. There is no easy way to plan for future healthcare choices. It is a process that involves thinking and talking about complex, sensitive, and sometimes very difficult issues.

If you do not have an Advance Directive or want to affirm what you have completed, contact Paula, Parish Nurse, to make an appointment to discuss these issues.

“All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16

Meal Care Partners Needed

Are you looking for a new way to serve your fellow members of the Body of Christ? Do you need a project that does not require a huge time commitment? Do you feel blessed to be a blessing? St. Peter has a group of dedicated people who prepare an occasional meal for a person or family going through a short term difficult time due to illness, grief, or other stressful situation. We are currently looking to add to our list of persons willing serve in this manner. A Care Calendar is utilized to schedule these meals. You would be asked to prepare the meal and deliver it to the family on a one-time basis. For more information please contact Paula Hoegemeyer at (586) 322-2319 or hoegemeyer@att.net.
