Christ UMC has a team of caring servants, who are committed to identifying and serving the needs of its congregation where they can. We love others because he first loved us.
We visit with our homebound members or those with extended hospital stays. The goal is to stay in communication with those who may feel alone or isolated from their church family. In addition to our friendly visit, we offer communion and anointing, along with scripture reading and prayer.
Can’t physically visit? That’s okay because there are many ways in which to participate. You may wish to make phone calls or send cards, or be a prayer warrior. You may dedicate yourself to being a “pew shepherd” and contacting those around you who may have missed a Sunday service. You may have a little time after the Sunday service to follow up with Sunday visitors by taking them a welcome gift to their home.
The Congregational Care Team listens for the needs that arise within a family, such as transportation or meal needs, assistance inside or outside the home, or any other type of need that they members can pitch in to assist one another.
This is a vital ministry within the church and there’s room for you to join our team. Come share your talent or gift…God can use you. Contact Sonni McEvoy, team leader, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
