Caregivers Brunch

We are blessed to be addressed once again by Sister Michele at our annual brunch this year on Saturday, June 3, from 11 AM - 2 PM.

If you have never heard Sister Michele – you are missing out! She is not your typical nun! Sister Michele is one of the Sisters of Mercy, who always brings us a word of challenge and encouragement, with her unique sprinkling of humor!

Our topic this year is: “Getting the Help We Need as Caregivers”

If you are a caregiver, please do join us! If you know someone who is a caregiver, please pass the word along to them.

The Unbound Conference is a comprehensive presentation of the Unbound model based on the material found in the book, Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance by Neal Lozano. The purpose of the conference is two-fold. First, conference attendees receive the foundational teaching of Unbound in six sessions over two days.
