The 9:45 Sunday School class, “Parents of Teenagers,” will be travelling a slightly different path over the next few sessions addressing the closely related issue of the “Sandwich Generation’s” challenges. People in the Sandwich Generation find themselves supporting not only their own children but also caring for their aging parents. These responsibilities can be a test of patience, faith and perseverance.  Class participants will discuss and share effective strategies for dealing with the many details of care-giving  will gain support from others going through the same challenges, and will explore spiritual insights related to the way in which we are called to care for one another.
On October 6th Bill Moberly, St. Matthew’s Associate Pastor for Visitation and Senior Ministries, will lead a discussion of “Elder Care Considerations.” Please join us for this discussion.
