Good Shepherd Episcopal Church Hayesville invites the public to join in a four-week course on end-of-life issues, beginning April 28 at 5:00 pm. The first topic is Wills and Advance Care Directives, to be moderated by Deborah Nichols of Nichols and Nichols Law Firm.
According to Rector Dr. Bill Breedlove, “Advance planning for the end-of-life can be very helpful and comforting to those who suddenly find themselves grieving, God forbid, the loss of a loved one.” Father Bill urges Good Shepherd parishioners and other members of the community to “consider attending this class and following through with developing or re-examining an existing end-of-life plan as a gift from you to your loved ones.”
Additional topics will be discussed on May 5, Hospice Care, led by Good Shepherd Home Health and Hospice Care; May 12, Planning Your Burial Service, led by Father Bill; and May 19, Things You Will Need to Know When Your Spouse Dies, discussed by Good Shepherd Parishioners. Each Monday evening discussion will be preceded with a simple supper of salad and bread.
Good Shepherd will provide the meal free of charge, but there will be a free-will offering. Those who plan to attend are asked to contact the church at 828-389-3397.
