Can you spare an hour a month for
CANTON HEALTH CARE?

Northminster has ministered at Canton Health Care Center for many years on the third Tuesday of each month from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

It has just come to our attention that another section of the facility would greatly enjoy and benefit from this ministry as well. However, in order to facilitate this we need more help.

Two teams of 5 MEN or WOMEN would be ideal.

If you are willing to join us in this endeavor, please contact one of these women: Margaret Bischoff, Elaine Clark, Linda McGinnis, Marion Morgan, Marsha Mossgrove, Joanne Sogan, Micki Williams.

You can carpool by meeting at the church at 1:40 or go directly to Canton Health Care and meet the team there by 2:00 p.m. Whatever works best for you.

The next visitation is this Tuesday, October 17
