We reach out to members in our own community, so as to strengthen our common service to the world. When the Body of Christ is supported faithfully, we are better able to share our love and resources with those in need both near and far.
We support those who cannot regularly join in communal church activities.
HOME COMMUNION MINISTRY
A trained team of Eucharistic ministers bring Holy Communion to our homebound members each month, in their homes and in institutional settings.
SAGES WORSHIP SERVICES
On Maundy Thursday and the Thursday before Christmas, we offer a pew communion service for members who cannot regularly be at worship, with drivers who will pick up those who have no family to drive them.
FLOWER & CD DELIVERIES
We deliver flowers and CD from the Sunday traditional worship service to those homebound members who request them.
We support each other through a number of practical ministries.

For those needing transportation to doctor visits and medical tests or procedures, we have people who will assist in helping people get to their appointments.

BIRTHDAY CARD MINISTRY
We send birthday cards to each of our Sages (persons 80 years of age or older) during the month of their birthdays.
In August, we have a Sages Celebration at our Sunday worship services, and honor all those who are 80 years of age or older inviting them to stay for a brief social after services.
We stay connected to each other in a variety of interpersonal ways.
A trained team of parish visitors reaches out to other members in times of illness, grief and life transition, with face-to-face visits.
A trained team of hospital visitors supplements the visitation ministry of our rostered leaders, with regular visits to our members who are hospitalized.
