CARE OF CONGREGATION
Intercessory Prayer Group
In coordination with the women’s Sisterhood Sunday School class, this prayer group meets every Sunday morning to pray for our church family, community, nation, world, and leaders. These faithful and committed members welcome people to join them as they gather in prayer. With prayer being the single point of communication with God, a prayer list is provided in the First News newsletter and posted on the board outside the office. All members are encouraged to participate in prayer for others.
As the children of our church grow up and move on to higher education, we strive to provide communication (cards) to let them know they’re in our thoughts and prayers. Sunday School classes send these cards and collect specific items to be included in exam survival goody bags given to our college students for both winter and spring exams.
Women of the church prepare casseroles and place them in the freezer stored in the church kitchen. Deacons, church staff members, or church members are encouraged to deliver these casseroles to anyone in need of a meal.
This is a group of volunteers from our congregation who help church members with simple chores around their homes.
All church members are assigned a Deacon as their personal contact with the church. Caring volunteers are needed in addition to Deacons to stay in touch with members by making personal phone calls to say hello.
This ministry involves delivering a DVD of the Sunday service to nursing home residents or shut-ins.
From time to time, people within our congregation are in need of transportation to and from church, doctor’s appointments, or simply to run errands around town. The individuals involved in this outreach opportunity provide their time and efforts to assist others during a time of need.
Share the Care
This program offers support and companionship to those in our congregation who are shut-ins or are in nursing homes. Individuals or couples “adopt” a nursing home resident or shut-in and visit them once a month. A second component of this ministry involves phoning and sending cards to nursing home residents or shut-ins.
A group of volunteers knit shawls for people who are in the hospital. The pastors deliver these shawls to members of our church who are patients.
