A new congregation-wide Care Team is being formed with the bold mission of helping us care for one another through all stages of life, through celebrations and sorrows. We imagine a Care Team made up of lots of people who stand ready to meet needs in a variety of ways. When we know of a need the Care Team leaders will reach out to see who can help. We hope to provide care for each other not just in times of crisis, but when good things happen too (you got a new job, made the honor roll, passed a tough course, ran your first 5K), or even just in the middle of ordinary life (who wouldn’t appreciate a surprise, home-cooked meal in the middle of a busy week, or a parents night out?)
Here’s where you come in: we need to know how you’d like to put your caring into action. Here are some of the ways we’ve thought of, but maybe you have another idea: Visits to homebound church members, visits to the hospital, meals, celebrations, offers to babysit, phone calls, cards, prayers… What else?
If you’re interested in helping out, please contact Faith Manley, or email the office. You can also note your interest on Sunday’s connection card and/or join us for a brief information session this Sun., Feb. 19, following worship.
