Fellowship and care

Fellowship and CareHoliday Fair, 2010

The Fellowship and Care Ministry focuses on the means by which we strengthen our bonds with each other and how we support those among us who are shut-in, ill, or overwhelmed by life’s troubles. The work of the Ministry ranges from visiting members in nursing homes to serving coffee on Sunday mornings.

Hospitality

  • organize, serve, and clean up at our post-worship coffee hours.
  • in conjunction with the bereaved family, organize and serve collations after funerals.
  • organize, prepare and serve special dinners.

Visitation

Contact with shut-in members by phone or with a personal visit.

Direct Support

  • prepare and deliver a meal.
  • shop for groceries.
  • take care of miscellaneous errands, such as picking up a prescription.
  • deliver the Sunday flowers to someone in the hospital or a nursing home.
  • prepare something for a collation or special celebration as needed.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Shawls: Made for centuries, universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally-loving God, they wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter, and beautify. Those who have received these shawls have been uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to fly above their troubles. If you knit or crochet and would like to participate in our prayer shawl ministry, contact Doris Wilson at 781-395-2186.
