Beginning September 17-A 3-session book study on 'Gift of Empathy' offered by Stephen Ministry

Join us in reading and talking about The Gift of Empathy book published by Stephen Ministries. It takes an in-depth look at empathy as a learnable skill, showing how it can enhance relationships, improve communication, and help people better connect with one another.

"I used to get too wrapped up in other people's issues and emotions, or I'd avoid reaching out, for fear of getting too involved. Learning what empathy really is has freed me from both extremes. It's so helpful knowing how to care in ways that are best for you and for the other person." (Pages 20 and 21)

The book is available after worship at both the Hazel Dell and Messiah North campuses as well as the church office. Cost is $10.

The Gift of Empathy Discussion dates:

Chapters 1 – 7 Sunday, Sept. 17

Chapters 8 – 13 Sunday, Sept. 24

Chapters 14 – 17, Epilogue Sunday, Oct. 1

We will meet from 11:45 AM until 1:00 PM in the Fellowship Hall at the Hazel Dell campus. Have any questions? Contact Cathy Haywood at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
