WELCOME

Welcome to Prairie Faith Shared Ministry. Located in north central Kansas, six ELCA Lutheran congregations have stepped out in faith to enter into a truly shared ministry. We strive to provide the best tools for our members to grow as disciples of Christ and to proclaim the Good News of Christ within our communities and throughout the world. We hope you will join us at one of our churches for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

Mental Health First Aid Certification Course

Thursday, January 18, 2018

8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

WaKeeney Public Library Community Room

610 Russell Avenue, WaKeeney

 

 

What is Mental Health First Aid?

 

 

Just as first aid certification helps a person know how to assist someone with a physical injury, the 8-hour Mental Health First Aid certification course helps a person assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance abuse-related crisis.

 

 

Mental Health First Aid is intended for all people & organizations that make up the fabric of a community. People who regularly interact with the public, such as law enforcement, healthcare workers in hospitals, nursing homes or the community or home setting, human resource directors, school employees, pastors, friends & family of individuals with mental illness or addiction or anyone interested in learning more about mental illness & addiction will benefit from being trained.

 

 

MHFA teaches participants to apply an action plan in a variety of situations, including when someone is experiencing a panic attack, suicidal thoughts or behaviors, non-suicidal self-injury, acute psychosis (hallucinations or delusions), overdose or withdrawal from alcohol or drug use or reaction to a traumatic event. Participants learn risk factors & warning signs for mental health & addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis & non-crisis situations & where to turn for help (existing community resources).

 

 

A workbook, lunch, drinks and snacks will be provided to participants; there is no cost to attend.

 

 

RSVP by Thursday, January 11, 2018 to Nancy Bollig at 785-769-4731 (please text or leave a voicemail if no answer) or email parishnurse@ruraltel.net

Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

The Trego County Ministerial Alliance will once again sponsor a special prayer service January 24, 2018 at Christ the King Catholic Church starting at 6:00 p.m. with a meal. Soup and relishes will be provided. All other congregations will provide crackers and desserts for 10 for a total of 80 to be served. This will include all Midweek Students & families.

January 17-25, 2018 is the annual observance of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The theme for the 2018 is "Your Right Hand, O Lord, Glorious in Power," is taken from the book of Exodus 15:6.

The Christian Unity Prayer Service offers an opportunity to meet and pray with fellow Christians of different denominations in our locality. Often new local initiatives emerge out of meeting and praying together.
