Prairie View to Host Chaplaincy Program Fundraiser

April 10, 2018

NEWTON, Kan. (April 10, 2018) – Prairie View, Inc., invites the public to a Spring Vespers musical event on Sunday, April 22, at 5 p.m. at Prairie View’s Chapel, 1901 E. First St., Newton. The event is a fundraiser for Prairie View’s chaplaincy and pastoral care programs.

Musical group “Dunns Plus One” of McPherson will perform a variety of bluegrass, contemporary and sacred selections. Members include Rev. Kathy Neufeld Dunn, Michael Dunn, Ann Dunn and Faith Wenger.

There is no charge to attend. Freewill donations will be accepted.

The chaplaincy and pastoral care programs are entirely donor funded, and are an extension of the organization’s mission, which is to foster healing and growth in individuals and communities by providing behavioral and mental health services with compassion, competence and stewardship in the spirit of Christ.

“When clients come to Prairie View, our goal is to show compassion without judgement regardless of their circumstances,” says Karen Andres, Prairie View chaplain. “Being faith-based means offering hope in the midst of despair. As a chaplain, I want to bridge the gap between possible negative misconceptions and how being served ‘in the spirit of Christ’ could be a positive step in their healing process.”
