Serve in Care Ministries
Care ministry volunteers reach out to people who are hurting, both within and beyond our church. In a variety of ways they provide help and hope to the hospitalized, the homebound, seniors, people with disabling conditions.
These Care Ministries are open to new volunteers:
Comfort Dogs (PROT)-- These trained service animals bring comfort to the hurting. Being a volunteer dog handler or dog caregiver in this active ministry is very rewarding, but not easy, involving high standards, rigorous training, significant time, and involve travel.
Prayer Chain (IMM) – A leader sends out a weekly email with prayer requests to those who serve by keeping those needs in their prayers.
Tuesday Prayer Group – This group meets weekly specifically for prayer.
Meadows/Clearbrook (PROT, IMM, FAM)– Once a month, volunteers join Pastor Klopke in leading a Jesus Time of song, Bible stories and craft at these residential homes for people with disabilities.
Senior Visitation Team (PROT) – These volunteers serve the frail elderly through regular phone calls, and others make visits as needed.
God’s Special Friends (PROT, FAM) – A ministry that provides Bible study time designed for people age 13 and up who have cognitive disabilities.
Additional Care Ministries:
Deacons (PROT) – Volunteers who assist our pastors in making calls on people who are hospitalized and also on homebound seniors.
Care Ministry Advisory Council (INF) – A group who support and advise Pastor Klopke on the overall care ministries.
Stephen Ministries (PROT) – Weekly supportive visits with those facing long term challenges such as grief or serious illness.
