Creating Healing Congregations Training

Creating Healing Communities: Walking with those affected by Incarceration

The Youth Chaplaincy Coalition, a task force of the Church Council of Greater Seattle, invites you to “Creating Healing Communities: Walking with those affected by incarceration” on Saturday, March 14 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at First AME Church, 1522 14th Ave., Seattle 98122.

Healing Community congregations will build teams with other congregations in Washington and work to build an effective and powerful movement to change the criminal justice system at both the state and federal level.

Come hear how to bring awareness to your congregation about the issues of incarceration and recovery, reducing the sense of stigma and shame. Learn how to connect with those currently incarcerated, and how to provide support through support groups and pastoral counseling for the family and mentoring for returning citizens. Connect your congregation with community resources to better serve returning citizens.

Register and RSVP to the Rev. Terri Stewart, YCC-Chaplain@thechurchcouncil.org or 425.531.1756.
