Support offered for 'career transitions'

Lake Wylie Lutheran, 2906 Hwy. 160 West at Gold Hill Road, is offering a "Career Transition Support Ministry" that includes sharing faith stories and connections.

"For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope" (Jeremiah 29:11). The purpose of this ministry is to provide confidential, Christian fellowship for those making job or career changes to discuss feelings, common issues and practical actions during their transition time.

Participants engage in sharing their situation and what they are looking to do. Facilitators and other participants as well provide feedback and ideas to help focus on successful action plans while strengthening a faith relationship with God.

The meeting format begins with a devotional followed by introductions, individual weekly check- in, group discussion topics like feelings, resumes, networking, interviewing, follow up, family and how to market yourself. We'll end each meeting by identifying action items for the coming week and close with prayer.

The meetings are scheduled 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesdays and are facilitated by the Stephen Ministers of Lake Wylie Lutheran Church. For more information, contact

Pastor Lybrand 548-5489 or or Sharon Crout, 802-3469 or
