“A new Command I give you: Love one another.
As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love another.”
Congregational Care Ministries provide care, concern, prayer and support for families and individuals at various stages, places and circumstances of life and engage the congregation to be in service and community for one another. The focus of these ministries is to respond to the care and support needs of the congregation and to engage in ongoing spiritual, physical, emotional and relational expression of living faithfully within the Body of Christ.
Prayer is our power. The Prayer Team meets for intercession and corporate prayer every Sunday morning, Wednesday morning by teleconference and Wednesday evening in the chapel. Submitted prayer requests are highlighted by those gathered. All members are welcomed to participate. If intercession is your spiritual gift, contact the Prayer Ministry Coordinator to become active with the Prayer Team.
Sick & Shut In /Hospital Visitation
Members and friends of the church who are in any local hospital, assisted living facility or homebound are called or visited by members of the committee. Please let the Church Office know when someone is going into the hospital or is sick and can't attend church so that information can be placed in the bulletin and on the prayer list.
Funeral & Grief Ministry
The Funeral & Grief Ministry assists families in the celebration of life for a departed loved one. In addition, the Ministry offers resources to help with the grief process. Monthly group counseling sessions, called Grief Share, are offered at no charge and are led by trained volunteers. For more information, or assistance with details related to funeral arrangements, contact the church office at 336.723.4531.
Health & Welfare
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.(1 Corinthians 6:19-20, NIV) This scripture passage guides the Health and Welfare Ministry to equip the congregation with tools to care for themselves mentally and physically. Health screenings coupled with information provided monthly in the bulletins, highlight the outreach initiatives of this ministry. To encourage physical activity, the committee sponsors a monthly walk after services year round at a local walking trail and a weekly cardio, toning and strength class at church.
