We have professional people to teach you skills and provide current resource information. We encourage you at whatever your “life stage” to join us and learn practical steps toward making this time productive, God-honoring, and helpful while caring for loved ones who need our help.

Class will begin Sunday, February 3, and go through March 9, 2008. We will meet in the Chapel from 3:00-5:00 p.m. The cost is $15 per person, or $25 per couple. Please contact Cindy at the church office for more information, 503.644.3156 or cmeyer@cmbc.org. This program is open to the public.
