Updating Our Advance Directives

While this pandemic has caused many of us to have extra time to reflect…this is a perfect time to take the opportunity to write or update your advance medical directive. Being prepared, and documenting your wishes in writing, is a gift to those who love you, and peace of mind for you.

Below are some helpful resources to ensure those close to you are aware of, and prepared to carry out, your wishes if you become sick and cannot communicate on your own behalf.

Consider taking this opportunity to talk together as a family about each of your end of life wishes. You may also want to talk about favorite poems, passages, musical selections, or even quirky things unique to you, that you would like included in your celebration of life, when that day comes.

We would be glad to hold a copy of all of this in the church office, if that is helpful.
