Teen and most volunteers not having contact with patients take 4 hours of training while patient care volunteers have 16 hours.

Stewardship Thought
December 17, 2017 - "Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1  -- Thessalonians 5:16-18

This scripture reading sums up Stewardship. "Rejoice always" means place your trust in God; He will provide all that you need. "Pray constantly" means prayer should be a running conversation with God throughout the whole day, every day. "Give thank in all circumstances" means even in bad situations, thank God. Suffering a little bit helps build empathy for others in similar situations.
