In May 2017, Rev Hilde Seal introduced us to four Working Bears: Lee, Shari, Andy and Lang. They had been seeking a place where they could live and help take care of people. When they heard that we were a group that liked to laugh, learn, share our hearts and hug... they knew they had found the right spot. Our children taught them to listen well and share love and helped them perfect their hugging skills. 

Now they linger in our two places of Worship listening to the prayers and hymns while they wait for the opportunity to visit people in hospital or at home, sharing hugs and hope. 

More recently three more Working Bears have joined the team: Maxx, Donny and Buddy.

Our working bears have continued to share hugs and hope to those requiring them even through the pandemic. 

Please contact Rev. Ryan Tristin Chapman if you would like to receive support from this ministry.
