Visitation

Ministry to the sick and home-bound invites us to respond to Jesus’ invitation:
I was sick and you visited me. —Matthew 25:36

Upon request, the following services are available:

  • Visitation to members at home, in assisted living residents or hospital.
  • Communion on the first Sunday of the month after Sunday Worship.
  • Prayer Circle with the option for laying on of hands.
  • Bestowal of a Prayer Shawl.
  • Flower or meal delivery during times of grief or illness.
  • Referral to the Sounds of Grace, a Winchester-based interfaith hospice choir providing music for individuals in hospice and palliative care both at home or in a care residence.

 

Visitation Sundays

Paired with a Minister, Health Ministry Member or Deacon, congregants after Sunday service visit members at home or in assisted living centers. Each visiting team shares the good news preached at morning service. They are prayerfully present to the joys and concerns of the person visited. Discussion over lunch prepares the teams for visitation. Held three times a year, it is a faith-affirming experience for both the team and the person visited.

 

A Christmas and Easter Traditioncross-flowers

Families and members deliver sanctuary plants to members unable to attend Christmas and Easter services. It is a teachable moment of Christian love and service for families who make it part of their tradition. Plants are available for delivery the Sunday before Christmas and on Easter after the 9 am and 11 am services in the front of the sanctuary.
