Our goal is to be there as ministers of compassion for a family following a funeral service by providing them a reception or dinner. Our funeral coordinators are Chris Nanfito & Glenda Rathjen.
SOS (Serving Others Sustenance)
Our goal is to provide a meal, or two to families needing a helping hand. Especially following hospitalations, birth of a baby, and even death in the family. Remember you are not alone, say SOS and we will be there to provide wonderful meal so you won’t have to worry. Our SOS coordinator is Teri Rheinheimer.
Visiting and Supporting the Community
This happens in many ways – through birthday and anniversary cards to bringing a care basket to a hospital room. We try to remain in contact with the community as they share their needs. This ministry rises and falls as we allow ourselves to let the board edify you as we deal with life situations. You can contact any deacon at any time so that we can pray for you and help you out as we are able.
