Nurture & Fellowship
The Nurture & Fellowship Team, through prayer and intentionally loving actions, serves this community by extending the helping hand of Christ to our fellow disciples through their joys, sufferings, and celebrations of life.

Care Ministry Team consists of two lay members, the Senior Pastor, and Visitation Pastor. They meet regularly to discuss prayer and visitation requests. They also send out cards to those celebrating special occasions. Join the team!
Also part of our Care Ministry are:
- Prayer Warriors – Team of “prayer warriors” who receive prayer requests and pray individually for the needs of our congregation at various times throughout the week.
- Eucharistic Ministers – These folks take and administer the Eucharist to our homebound members.
- Card Ministry – Church volunteers send cards of encouragement, congratulations, or get-well wishes to parishioners, as well as their families and friends, to let them know someone is thinking about them.
- Ride Share – Church members volunteer to pick up parishioners who desire to worship in person but who are no longer able to drive.
Prayer Shawl MinistryMembers pray as they make prayer shawls which are given to anyone experiencing a life crisis. All are welcome to join the group. No experience is needed. If you or someone you know is in need of a prayer shawl, please contact the church office or fill out a Connections Card
