The Care Team is made up of church members who have volunteered to contact and visit members from our church due to the following:
Hospital Visitation Team – This group connects with people who are undergoing hospitalization for surgical procedures, illness, and birth of a baby.
Long-Term Care Visitation Team – This group connects with people who are residents of long-term care facilities and have limited mobility and cannot come to church.
Home-Bound Care Visitations Team – This group connects with people who are largely confined to their homes by illness or infirmity and cannot come to church.
Communion Visitation Team -This group brings communion to people on the first Sunday of each month after the elements have been blessed during the morning services. Only people who request to have communion brought to them will receive this service.
The Care Team also has members who make phone calls to check on church members, and send cards.
The Care Team is looking for more volunteers to serve on any of the before mentioned teams. Should you be interested please contact our Care Team Coordinator, Jerry Eberlyn
Do you ever wonder what our Helping Hands ministry does? Think you might like to volunteer but not sure what you’d be getting yourself into?
Helping Hands provides meals for church family members after a funeral or service. It’s just like cooking at home for your family. We have a set menu, so there’s no guess work. There is a crew that sets up the tables, then arranges the napkins and silverware – just like at home. Food is pulled from the oven or refrigerator and put out for serving – just like at home. And just like at home, there are dishes to wash! Following these meals, families offer many thanks and words of gratitude. We provide a very appreciated service – just like at home!
There is no set schedule for your helping hands. We step in when needed. Helping Hands always needs volunteers. so if you could offer your hands, please give Lee your name.
