This program is our way of extending Christ’s helping hand within our own congregation. We recognize that we our members come to our church family with diverse needs and talents. Called to Care is devised to match those two elements that we might first meet the needs of our own congregation, thereby equipping ourselves to go into the world as disciples of Jesus Christ.

There is a need for:
Parish Friends – congregants develop ongoing relationships with the other members through regular visits, over the phone or in person
Parish Drivers – serve the congregation by volunteering to drive those who cannot to church and, in rare cases, to the other crucial appointments.
Meal Chain – church members make and deliver meals to those who have suffered a loss, welcoming a new child, or in times of transition.
Prayer Ministry – a prayer chain set up to offer prayers on behalf of congregation members and others in times of illness, difficulty, or joy.
Condolence Reception – Volunteers bake cookies, make finger sandwiches, and host receptions at funerals and memorial services.
