Outreach Ministries

 

Greeting Card Ministry:
This ministry is another way that we show the love of Christ as a community of faith. This group sends cards and well wishes to our Homebound  and military. They also send to those having a landmark anniversary or birthday as well as the newly baptized and anyone else in the parish that needs to know that they are loved and supported by their church family. To offer a name for an encouraging card, contact Brenda Raithel.

Intercessory Prayer Group
Intercessory Prayer Group is an extension of the Greeting Card Ministry. The members of this group gather written and verbal prayer requests from individuals and all requests are prayed over. Cards are written to those who have chronic illnesses, surgeries, have ongoing medical treatments or proceedures such as chemotherapy or radiation. It might also include cards to military personnel or spiritual encouragement for loss of employement. A prayer request box is located in the foyer or information can be sent to Monica Barnett.
