Interested in Helping Patients at Methodist Hospital?
UnityPoint is looking for volunteers for Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) and Patient and Family Support Team (PFST).
The HELP volunteers work directly with older adult patients to prevent delirium and physical decline in the hospital. HELP volunteers provide daily visits, feeding assistance, and bedside exercises to our patients.
The PFST volunteers work with adult patients of all ages to promote connections with loved ones. This is done by providing video calls with friends and family who cannot visit the hospital, as well as other general support needs for the patient.
If you are interested in either opportunity, please email Lauren McDowell at Unity Point.

THOUGHTS FROM PASTORS & STAFF
NOT AS I EXPECTED
Last Sunday, about 100 people came back to worship in the sanctuary. As expected, things went off without a hitch for the most part...
HOLY TRINITY FOOD PANTRY
Donate to Holy Trinity Food Pantry
The Food Pantry is in need of the following items:
