Our Congregational Care Ministry relies on volunteers who are willing to connect and share love with fellow church members. There are a wide variety of opportunities to serve.
Visiting and calling our members who are homebound or live in Assisted Living. Make one visit/call per month to your assigned members, especially remembering their birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. Update your member on key events happening in the church and provide companionship.
It is important that our members who are no longer able to come to worship continue to feel loved and supported by their church. Our Homebound Ministry connects volunteer church members with homebound members for visits and ongoing relationship. Flowers, phone calls, cards, and/or monthly visits help our older members to know that they are still an important part of our congregation. If you or a loved one would like to be added to our homebound ministry and receive a visit, please contact Erin Kimbrel (ext. 7813).
Two times each year (in May and December) we offer a special worship service for our Homebound members. On a Sunday evening, we have dinner and a short worship service including communion. This gives those for whom Sunday morning is too difficult to navigate an opportunity to come to church. Valet parking is offered and minimal walking is required. Family members are invited to bring a loved one or we can arrange transportation for those who need it.
Write one note per month to each person you are assigned, bringing them up to date on one or two things that are happening at the church. Also send a special note on their birthday or anniversary. This is a small way to remind our members that they are being thought of and remembered.
Each Sunday we break down the flowers used in worship into individual vases for delivery to the hospitals and homebound members. Volunteers arrange flowers immediately after worship on Sunday morning.
