Shut-In Ministry

The Shut-In ministry is an enriching ministry meeting the needs of the elderly and others who cannot physically attend church in person.  Some of those visited are still in their own homes, while other are in nursing homes or other care facilities.  Volunteers from the church make weekly visits to these members.  We have teams of people who go out each week to visit a different shut-ins and then rotate each week.

Each week, those that request so are given a bulletin and CD of the latest church service to stay in touch with the church and to be able to worship no matter where they are located.  During the visits, members take prayer request from them, spend time talking with them and to just be there for them as support on a regular basis.  It means so much to them, but more often it is more of a blessing to those doing the visits.  The senior shut-ins have so many stories and so much to offer and teach us. We also provide communion and pastoral visits to shut-ins and those in care facilities.
