Concord Care & Nurture Ministry

Encompassing five different ministry teams, this ministry seeks to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those unable to join regularly in worship or those who need special assistance from time to time.  The ministry teams are as follows:
·           Grace Ministry – Visit a homebound senior adult (Every 4 to 6 weeks for 20 – 30 minutes)
·          Extend the Table – Take communion to a homebound senior adult following communion Sunday
·           TLC – Deliver meals, prepared by the church hostess, one Thursday per month to homebound or recovering persons
·          Concord Caregivers – Provides occasional transportation to an appointment or helps with light grocery shopping (days and times will vary)
·          Concord Hope Builders – Provides help with simple home maintenance, such as light bulbs, replacing furnace filters, etc. (days/times vary)

If you are interested in becoming a part of any of these teams, please attend the Information and Training session on February 26, at 6:30 p.m. in Room 293

All persons currently serving in these ministries will need to attend, and update their Safe Sanctuary Training at this meeting in order to continue to serve in the ministry area.
