Alzheimer's Support Group
This group provides a caring and understanding environment for you to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias, to share your feelings and experiences, and to equip you with knowledge about available resources. The ongoing support of this group will help you to cope with the challenges of this disease and remind you that you are not alone. Caregivers or adult children of individuals with Alzheimer’s or other dementia conditions meet on the second Sunday of each month from 2-3:30 pm in the Discipleship Administration Center Room 417. For more information, contact Bernadette Bierley, (817) 581-7461 or Paulette Olson, (817) 788-2936.
Bereavement and Recovery Meals
Teams deliver meals by request to those persons who have experienced a death in the family or hospitalization.
A ministry to the homebound. Volunteers visit, provide Communion, deliver Upper Room devotionals, CDs of worship, care packages, prayers and cards.
College Care Packages
Notes, gift cards and treats are sent to our college students during fall and spring finals to encourage them and keep them connected to their home church. If you are interested in "adopting" a college student or you have a college student you'd like to be added to our list, please contact Sheila Shaw or Kim Kuhlman.
Pastoral care is offered, and referrals are available.
Extending the Table
Each month our Caring Hearts team visits with and offers Communion to our neighbors at Evergreen, Heritage House and Brookdale Senior Living residences. As many of these folks are unable to attend our worship services, yet desire to participate in the sacrament, we believe this is a meaningful and needed area of ministry. Communion is offered the second Tuesday of each month, providing a wonderful opportunity to share and experience Christ's love with our neighbors. If you would like to participate or have additional questions, please contact Victoria Wilson.
Faith Community Nursing
Faith Community Nursing is a health and wellness ministry of professional nurses that helps educate congregants on the relationship between spirituality and wellness while providing resources to help keep them well. They are available at specific times for blood pressure checks, health questions, education, guidance, referral and prayer. For more information, contact Peggy Harding and Jackie Kiebler.
Prayer Covering Ministry
Members of our congregation create baby blankets for families celebrating newborns as well as quilts and shawls that are given to those going through difficult times such as grief or illness. Monthly meetings are on the 4th Monday of each month in Susanna Wesley House from 9:30am-12pm. Bring your own project you are working on, including sewing machine, knit or crochet. Knitted, crocheted, and quilted coverings are brought to the meetings and are prayed over. These are then given out as needed by the pastors to comfort and encourage the recipients. You do not have to make a covering to be part of this ministry. Come join us for fellowship and prayer. Contact Paula Burda or Sarah Colvin for more information. Fall meetings resume on October 22.
In difficult times, we often need a person in whom we can confide, someone who will listen, someone who will care, someone who will help. Stephen Ministers want to support you and be there for you. If you are in need of this type of ministry or you think you could be helpful to others as a Stephen Minister, contact Page Hines.
