* * ONGOING MISSIONS & MINISTRIES * * *
And remember — We still have these ongoing ministries to share …
Meals for Seniors/Shut-ins Ministry – Serving light meals to local senior citizens who live alone and letting them know that someone cares and is thinking of them. Read more …
Prayer Shawl Ministry program — Do you know anyone who may benefit from the calming spiritual grace of a warm shawl? The church has several shawls, hand made by our church members, that have been stitched with prayer and well-wishes for the recipient and then blessed during worship service. They are free for the giving. Contact Pastor Elizabeth to coordinate a time and place for pick-up. For more information on the spiritual comfort program, Prayer Shawl Ministry.
Cards of Care Ministry — A new ministry for everyone — Due to the current lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we realized that many residents living in care facilities are not able to receive visitors. We are gathering cheerful greeting cards once a month and bringing them to local care facilities so the administrators or nursing staff can give one to a resident to help brighten their day when they may be feeling down or lonely. If you’d like to contribute to this ministry and can’t attend the card collection events, contact Pastor Elizabeth or call the church (353-4982) for other options.***
The “Dismantling Racism: Pressing on to Freedom” initiative is a multi-level effort throughout the church to initiate a sustained and coordinated effort to dismantle racism and promote collective action to work toward racial justice. For more information, visit: UMC.org/EndRacism and Facebook. “Words are great, words are important – but action is really important,” said Bishop Harvey. “Pick up your pen, pick up your voice, pick up your feet, and do something.”
