The Health Ministry sponsors several programs:
The Caring Network is comprised of congregants who reach out to others with a meal or practical gifts in times of acute illness, transition or unexpected need. The network is an organized extension of the care we offer one another.
The Flower Committee brings a touch of joy to those members celebrating one of life’s milestones, or who find themselves at home for reasons of health, or who could simply use a lift. Using the altar flowers, eight volunteers serve once a month to design and deliver floral arrangements after Sunday service or early in the week. The monthly commitment of each member is a maximum of 3-4 hours.
Do you have a youth, individual or family that you would like flowers delivered to? Would you like to learn more about being membership on the Flower Committee? Contact: Sally Hawksworth and Kellee Fiske, co-chairs, or Kathleen Zagata.
Shawls are symbols of an unconditional loving God.
They wrap, enfold, comfort mother and beautify.
—Janet Severi Bristow
Made in prayer, shawls are passed on hand-to-hand and heart-to-heart. When we bestow a prayer shawl, we gather in a circle to bless the shawl that it will encircle the receiver in God’s love and peace. A personalized note and explanation accompany the gift.
Shawls are gifted for many reasons:
If you would like a youth, individual or family to receive a shawl, please contact Kathleen Zagata, Health Minister, firstname.lastname@example.org
Wish to donate a prayer shawl? We welcome knitters and crotcheters from the wider community to create and donate a prayer shawl? For questions regarding knitting or crocheting a prayer shawl, please contact Karen Lauterwasser.
