Paul's Letter to the Romans: "A Letter for Today"
Join Bill Postler for a study of Paul's Letter to the Romans. Instead of exploring the theology of Romans, Bill will focus on some of the relationships in Romans. Topics will include relationships with fellow Christians, relationships with people of other faiths (particularly Jews and Moslems), and relationships with the political world.
Sept. 24th “Political Relationships.”
"Spirituality at the End of Life"
Here are some options:
1. Ecumenical Friday Morning Bible Study lessons start on Friday September 8. Our new study is using Max Lucado’s book, “Before Amen,” - the power of a simple prayer. We meet at the Methodist church in a meeting room across from the kitchen. (easy parking) We begin gathering at 9:00 AM with the business meeting and lesson starting at 9:30 sharp so that we can be done hopefully by 11:00. BJo Hatten will lead us through the first chapter called "The Pocket Prayer". If possible, please read that chapter before class, but don't worry if you can't. There is no penalty. Just come. That's what's important. I'm sure we'll have a lot of prayer requests and need all the group to help out there. Come early so you can do your visiting before 9:30. Please join us! Contact BJo at 970-247-8513 or BJoHatten@aol.comfor more information.

Advance Care Planning is the process of expressing and documenting wishes for future healthcare decisions. This session will help you to understand and complete your:
• Medical Durable Power of Attorney
• Living Will
• CPR Directive
• Medical Orders for Scope of Treatment
Advance Care Planning (ACP) can be defined as the development and expression of wishes for of health care, including continuation or discontinuation of certain types of treatment and care. ACP allows a person to clarify their values and goals should they become unable to make a decision or speak for themselves in the future.
The process can start at any time in an adult’s life and should be revisited periodically. Advance care plans become more focused as health status changes, such as with the diagnosis of a disease or through the aging process. Ideally, advance care planning begins with conversations with a person’s health care agent (usually a friend or family member) and loved ones and discussions with a primary clinician and leads to written documentation (Advance Directives) of the decisions made during the course of those discussions.
It also is important to ensure documents are available in the healthcare system.
