As we prepare to celebrate 20 years of Second Helping later this year, the Board of Mission would like to invite those are interested in becoming Church Hosts at Second Helping to attend a training session. The Church Host is present for the meal each week, welcoming our guests, answering questions, and ensuring that the atmosphere remains warm and home-y.
There will be a training session on Sunday, Feb. 25 from 12:30-2:00pm. A simple lunch will be provided and we are thankful that Kevin Tilley, who is the director of security at Via Christi Hospital and a regular attender at our services, will help provide part of the training. You can expect to learn helpful tips for making Second Helping run smoothly, including time to talk about how to help prevent or respond to conflict between guests and how to best serve our guests who may be intoxicated or living with mental illness. If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Kerstetter, P.O. of Mission. We hope to have another training in March and you can watch the bulletin for that future date.
