SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24: 5:00 - 7:00 PM - COMMUNITY AWARENESS SUICIDE TRAINING
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25: 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM - A TRAINING FOR THOSE MINISTERING TO SUICIDAL DESPERATION
WHAT IS SOUL SHOP?
The Soul Shop™ Movement exists due to the need of desperately hurting people to be heard, noticed, and seen within their faith communities. Soul Shop™ provides training and support to faith community leaders. At any given time, 1 in 17 adults (according to Living Works) and 1 in 6 youth (CDC Report) are considering suicide.
Suicide reaches into people’s lives in multiple ways: through the death or suicide attempt of a loved one, through their own former or current suicidal thinking, or through worries about others going through hard times. At this moment, 1 out of 2 people in most congregations are personally impacted by the reality of suicide. Many congregations experience deaths to suicide among their own members, skyrocketing the impact to 100% of the congregation.
Soul Shop™ recognizes that most congregations are not equipped to adequately respond to this need. As a result, we seek to equip congregations in responding to desperation. With them, we hope to catalyze regional networks that create soul safe communities.
WHAT IS SOUL SHOP AT CELEBRATION CHURCH?

COMMUNITY AWARENESS SUICIDE TRAINING
The goal of CAST is to begin working in the larger community beyond the church to create a network of support for the desperate. This community-oriented program is designed to increase awareness of the dangers of suicide and discuss the steps that can be taken to reduce risks. This could be offered to parents, police, nurses, and any concerned citizen who might want to learn how to ask the question of suicide, learn about the prevalence of suicide in the community and get more engaged with how to be part of the solution.
