Our Role in Addiction Recovery
Tuesday, Nov. 5, 6:30-8 p.m., Room N203
Come and learn about addiction and its effects on families and the community, as well how we can help and support those struggling with addiction and recovery. This continuing education event for Visitation Ministry is open to the congregation and the community.
Our presenter will be Seth Evans, who has spent more than 15 years enslaved in drug addiction and the lifestyle that goes along with it. He has spent almost 5-1/5 years incarcerated due to those addictions. God has been very gracious to him and allowed him to find freedom from drugs, violence and crime, allowing him to serve Christ helping others find freedom from sin-controlled lifestyles. The courts allowed Seth to go through Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge as a diversion instead of 15 years in prison. Seth is currently serving as a Pastoral Assistant at Twin Cities Church, Director of Programs at Metro Hope Ministries, Director of Programs at Twin Cities Ministries, as the Ramsey County Jail Chaplain and is on the Board of Missionary Evangelism to Corrections.

Advance care planning
Advance care planning is talking to your loved ones about what you would like your health care choices to be if a time comes when you are unable to speak for yourself. After you have this conversation, you may write down your wishes in a document called a health care directive. This document allows you to:
- Give instructions about the type of medical care you wish to receive or not to receive
- Choose a person(s), called a health care agent(s), to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to communicate
- Your parish nurses are here to help with the process.
