Lay Ministry Program

In addition to our called ministers we have a team a lay ministers who offer support through difficult times. Lay Ministers are church members who offer one-to-one caring and support to fellow church members in times of need, including: spiritual crisis; major life changes, such as the loss of a loved one, loss of employment, divorce or retirement; isolation because of age, mobility problems, or for other reasons; health problems, illness or hospitalization; other personal life changes.

Care and Concerns Program

In addition to spiritual support, we offer the practical support of meals and rides to the doctor or to church. A caring team of congregants has volunteered to help with this effort and they are coordinated through the lay ministry program. If you could use this support please contact the church office.
