Share the Plate
Horizon Share the Plate collections usually occur on the 3rd Sunday each month as a way to involve us in more and diversified social outreach. Money collected during the offertory not designated specifically for pledge payments goes to outreach.
On May 27th (the 4th Sunday) our recipient will be:
Sanctuary For Life
A Place for Rest, Reflection and Rejuvenation - Caring for Caregivers
Sanctuary For Life delivers transformative personal services to exhausted caregivers in need of stress relief and recovery. The AARP reports that the 24-7 stress of caregiving places caregivers at risk for heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, cancer, anxiety, depression and other diseases brought on by stress. The stress of caregiving is so demanding all too often caregivers die before the ones they care for do.
Military Veteran Caregiver Program - For almost every disabled veteran, there is a caregiver whose life has also been dramatically altered. Providing care for a physically and/or mentally challenged veteran can produce a level of stress that can be tragically debilitating. To help these heroic caregivers avoid that outcome, we reach out to the caregivers of wounded military veterans with programs and treatment modalities designed to reduce stress and restore vitality.
Stress Reduction Program – This addresses the debilitating effects of stress through serene environments, color and aroma therapies, massage, professional counseling and other modalities that lower our guests’ stress levels and teach them how to reduce stress in their everyday lives.
Healthy Eating Educational Program - Here, we teach caregivers how to nourish themselves and their loved ones in ways that support good health and maintain lower levels of stress.
