“Write On!  Telling Your Life Story”

Here is a great opportunity for you to get started writing those special, precious stories of your life you want to share with your family and friends. Lyn Berry, as her contribution to the church’s Talents Project, will offer two writing groups in her home. No writing experience necessary, just a willingness to have fun, relive precious memories and discover new ways to tell your stories. All you need to bring is a tablet, iPad or laptop for writing notes. You will learn some different ways to approach your subject and perhaps find some details you had forgotten. Lyn has taught life-story writing professionally for the City of Vista and the Vista Unified School District. Open to men and women. $5 per session. Come to one or both. Light refreshments. Dates: Sunday, August 30, 12:30-2:30 and Monday, Sept. 7, (Labor Day), 10 am to noon. Please RSVP to Lyn at 760.201.6113.

Seminar on Grief and Healing

The church is offering an 8-week Seminar on Grief and Healing on Wednesday afternoons beginning Wednesday, September 16 at 4 pm. The purpose of the seminar is to help those experiencing the loss through death of a loved one in their lives. It could be a family member, other relative, or a friend. It does not matter how long it has been since the loss occurred, as grief over a loved one comes and goes. This seminar will offer an opportunity for growth and healing with a spiritual emphasis.  Any questions, please call the church office or Kathy Johnson.
