Care Ministries

If you have a heart for senior shut-ins, this ministry could be for you. We reach out and offer support to church members and their family members who are reside in care facilities and/or are unable to attend church. Visitation Team members send cards of support and encouragement, make phone calls and make one-on-one visits in service to the homebound. They can also offer the sacrament of Holy Communion during their visits. For more information, please contact Rev. Sharon Reid at

If you have a heart for our country’s Service Members and would like to support them through prayer, this ministry is for you.

If you would like to join this ministry, contact Rev. Sharon Reid at
