"Circles of Caring" Now Forming
Do you like making phone calls? Do you long to connect with other members of the community? Are you looking for a way to engage in ministry at Christ Church without having to leave the comfort of your home? If so, we invite you to consider joining our new “Circles of Caring” ministry. The goal of this ministry is to ensure that every member of the Christ Church community receives regular check-ins from the parish, if desired. Calls will be made quarterly by a ministry team member to a small group of (no more than 10) parishioners. This team will meet periodically for training, support and to communicate any needs from the parish to the Pastoral Response Ministry (PRM) team for follow up. If this sounds like a ministry for you, or if you have any questions, please let Nick now by emailing him at nick@ccneedham.org.
