  • Visiting the ill at home or in the hospital
  • Supporting those going through a life crisis
  • Maintaining contact with those unable to attend church due to illness or disability
  • Supporting friends and family involved in care giving
  • Comforting the bereaved

Care Ministry Team

The Care Ministry Team cares for and attends to the personal needs of the congregation. These care providers are trained for ongoing one-on-one visits with parishioners. Lay visitors make a commitment to become “spiritual friends” with the people they visit monthly. The visitors bring joy and unconditional love to their brothers and sisters in Christ in a very special way. Those on the Care Ministry Team volunteer in the following ways:

  • Hospital Visitation
  • Retirement Home and Assisted Care Facility Visitation
  • Homebound Member Visitation
  • Deliver “Upper Room” Devotional Guides
  • Bereavement Support
  • Funeral Hospitality
  • Birthday Cards for Senior Adults
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Home Eucharist Ministry
  • Intercessory Prayer Ministry
  • Pioneers Monthly Senior Adult Luncheon and Program
  • Sunday Flower Ministry
