Every Day is a Fresh Start to Trust God, Find Balance and Be Nourished.
Nourish is a faith-based program designed to meet the practical, emotional and spiritual needs of family caregivers, where they are, in their faith community. Nourish feeds the souls of those juggling the challenges of life, health, career and caring for an aging parent, grandparent, sibling or spouse…whether in town or a distance away. Nourish is an important ministry to offer, helping churches evangelize and heal those who are caring for a loved one.
Why Is Nourish Needed Now?
In 2017, there were a reported 60 million family caregivers in the U.S. struggling and searching for support. That number is expected to grow dramatically as the population ages. So, where do they go for support? Family caregivers typically turn to a close friend, another family member, online groups or a trusted member of their faith community. Now is the time for churches to reach out and minister to the millions who are caring for a sick, disabled or aging loved one. And, Nourish is the program designed to do exactly just that.
My soul rests in God alone,
from whom comes my salvation.
God alone is my rock and salvation,
my fortress; I shall never fall.
How Is Nourish a Ministry?
Churches for years provide resources and support to people as they go through trials and challenges in their lives. And, churches are the place so many people turn to for important ministries such as grief support, widowed programs, divorce groups, and many others. Caregiving is a similar time of need, a time when people feel isolated, alone, ashamed and guilty. It is a time of incredible stress. With a ministry like Nourish, caregivers are invited to immerse themselves in feelings of love and confidence, finding strength through a Christ-centered view.
Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.
