CONGREGATIONAL CARE

Sick & Visitation Ministry

This ministry provides encouragement to sick and home bound members through home, hospital, and nursing home visitation. Members of this ministry visit our nursing homes and home bound members monthly. They send get well cards, a copy of our church bulletin and other Christian literature to comfort those who are sick and home bound, allowing our members to continue being an active part of the church.

The Sick/Visitation Ministry meets the last Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Board Room. For more information contact Felecia Dailey.

Grief & Loss Ministry

The aim of this ministry is to minister emotionally, spiritually and socially to fellow Christians within the church family and community who are experiencing a significant loss. Our church volunteers provide care to those in need through phone calls, cards, personal visits, and support groups.

Our Grief Support Group meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month (excluding the summer months) at 6:00 p.m. in the Parlor. For more information contact Mr. Jerome Crawford.
