Caring Ministries

Congregational Care Team

Pastor Heidi leads this team in making regular visits to those in need of prayer and encouragement. If you would like help make calls to people or visit them in their homes or the hospital, your gift of caring would be a gift well used!

Meal Train

A new baby is born, an accident knocks you off your feet, a surgery is scheduled – sometimes help with a meal is a tremendous gift! Sign up to be part of the team preparing meals for people in need.

Stitch’n’Time – Third Tuesday of the month

This group of talented people who knit and crochet meet monthly to make prayer shawls, prayer blankets, hats, mittens and gloves for people in need. All abilities welcome!

Sewing Group – Second Monday of the month

This new group of crafters came together this summer to start dreaming up ways to serve others through their creative talents. If you are a sewist of any level, you are encouraged to be part of it!
