The mission of the Caregiving Ministry seeks to surround our church family with caring and concern in times of difficulty and joy. Within this ministry, the impact of serving is great. Members not only feel fulfillment in what they do, but it is heart-warming to know that they make a difference in the lives of so many.
Being a Lay Shepherd is one way to serve and thus make a difference. It is a very special time for those visited and for the Lay Shepherds when they both come together in fellowship and caring.
The Caregiving Ministry also reaches out to those who are 80 and 80+ years young by sending birthday greetings. Cards are also sent to those in need of comfort throughout the year.
Another way to serve is being a Rides’ Volunteer, It means so much to our church family to be given a ride to church or a needed ride during the week.
Finally, the Prayer Shawl Ministry graciously donates their yarn, time, and talents in creating gifts of love and prayer for church family and friends. The Ministry is also reaching out to the community with donations of knitted items.
There is no term limit for the Caregiving Ministry. Members are welcome to join anytime and to serve with gladness.
