Oak Grove Christian hosts series on end-of-life questions

Published 10:21 am Friday, February 16, 2018

How can Christians best address the questions that come up at the end of life? Questions like organ donation, writing an effective will, dealing with grief, comforting the dying, explaining death to children?

Oak Grove Christian Church began a series of Sunday evening programs dealing with such questions last Sunday. The series will continue each Sunday evening through February and March. The church is located at 436 Jim Elliott Road in Elizabethton (intersection of Jim Elliott Road and Powder Branch Road.)
Sunday, Feb. 18, Elizabethton attorney John Banks will speak on legal issues that arise in making end-of-life decisions. He will address such questions as “What if I die without a will?” “What is a power of attorney?” “What is a living will?” “What mistakes do people make in writing their wills?” A question-and-answer session will follow Banks’s presentation.
Banks is associated with Banks & Banks Attorneys in Elizabethton. He is an elder of Hopwood Memorial Christian Church.
Subsequent Sunday evening programs include discussions of the roles of hospice, planning one’s own funeral, guiding people through the grieving process, and the question of “Where are the dead?”
The series begins with a sermon., “The Birth of Death,” a treatment of Genesis 3 by the church’s preaching minister, Ted N. Thomas of Milligan College.
