Hospice appreciates hospitality

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Christ Lutheran Church in Soldotna for their generosity and hospitality on behalf of the board of directors, staff, and volunteers. The Christ Lutheran congregation and their Pastor Randy Parshall have been so gracious in granting the use of their facility over the last 7 years to conduct local hospice volunteer training. We are blessed with a comfortable room to host our presentations and a kitchen that meets our needs perfectly. Our volunteer training requires the completion of a 30 hour course over a 2 week time-span. Hospice volunteers are taught the hospice philosophy of death and dying. Hospice care involves a team of trained volunteers in an approach tailored to help the patient and their family cope with a life threatening illness. A community that gives together stays together and Christ Lutheran is an exemplary model of this. Their support of our local community does not go unnoticed.
