Registration for a class called “Christian Caregiving A Way of Life” has begun at Opportunity Presbyterian Church, 202 N. Pines.

The class will meet each Sunday at 10 a.m., starting Feb. 16 and continuing through April.

The class is based on the book of the same title by Kenneth Haugk, a pastor and clinical psychologist. The book looks at the theology, psychology and the practice of Christian caring. The class will address how to apply caring skills to everyday life.
