Service and Charitable Works

The Service and Charitable Works Team conducts many acts of love toward the members of our congregation in need and encourages all members to Christian service in our community and the world with the assistance of council and guidance from the pastor.  Examples of service and charitable works include:

  • Arranging visitation and seasonal gifts to our shut-ins
  • Coordinating participation in outward focused service projects, e.g., Operation InasmuchSnacks in Packs
  • Seeking members to serve as representative to God’s Helping Hands
  • Reviewing the congregation’s annual commitments to outside ministries and service organizations, and suggesting revisions to the council
  • Counseling members of the congregation in their pursuit of charitable acts within and outside this congregation

2022 Report
In 2022, Covid continued to affect our visiting the more vulnerable members of our congregation. The members of the team continued to call these people on a regular schedule. In addition, cards were sent at Easter and poinsettias were delivered the week before Christmas. Gift cards were also sent to Greg Chapman and Katie Doble.
Team members assisted the Young Adult/Youth Ministry in preparing for Trunk or Treat which was well attended in spite of the rain.
