Death and Dying With Dignity
Pastor Beth will be offering a class for three Sunday evenings in February that explores the fundamental idea of dying with dignity. Our Christian core belief is that we belong to God in life and in death. We plan and celebrate birth with birth plans and showers. We decorate the nursery and start a college fund. Death is often not so carefully thought out. Yet, if we plan for a good death, we help our loved ones know of our desires for our final time on earth.
The class will meet on February 6th, 13th, and 20th, from 6:30-8:00pm.

What will be covered?? The plan is to use a booklet called "Five Wishes". It is a document that is the most widely used advance directive or living will in America. It is often called the "living will with a heart and soul" because it includes the things that matter the most. Unlike most other advance directives, it is easy to use and understand. Caring for people with a serious illness involves more than providing the best medical care. It means helping them to maintain their human dignity. That's where "Five Wishes" comes in.
What does a Presbyterian Service of the Witness to the Resurrection have? We will spend a nighttime looking at our service, talking about scripture, music and other things that would be important in your own service.
The last class will be looking at what other things should be done in the way of pre-planning your funeral. Planning ahead saves your loved one a great deal of worry and grief.
