Ministries

Caring
As the body of Christ, we are responsible for each other, so we actively care for those in our community. This care comes in the form of meals, listening ears, prayer, and support groups. Our care for one another is an expression of the love of God shared between us.

Caring Ministry Teams
Caring ministry teams provide a variety of opportunities to exercise our faith by caring for others as they go through difficult seasons of life, experience a loss, or need to be hospitalized.

The Caring Committee is made up of teams that provide meals for individuals or families after an overnight hospital stay or a death.

The Casserole Crew makes homemade frozen meals to be taken to individuals or families who might struggle to cook for themselves or who are occupied with caregiving. These meals are taken on an as needed basis.

Visitation Ministry is a lay caring ministry, where congregation members care for one another by developing relationships either over an extended period of time or on an as needed basis. Visitation ministers represent the church, listen and visit with the person receiving the visit, and pray for the individual and family.
Visitation Ministry provides training for those interested in caregiving skills. This training is appropriate for anyone interested in visiting those who are sick, hospitalized, or terminally; it also appropriate for those who work with or care for the elderly, including parents and relatives.
