When people become sick or disabled they often are unable to attend church.  Through our Homebound Ministry we try to match sponsors to homebound members.  Volunteers (sponsors) serve as the lifeline between homebound members and the church.  In addition to the people who volunteer as sponsors, communion stewards visit the homebound on the first Sunday of each month to serve communion.


 The Food Ministry is set up to provide church members with a meal for the family members before or after a funeral.  This meal can be provided on-site at the church or delivered to a home if located within 15 miles of the church.

 If the funeral falls at a time when a meal is not needed or the family wants to gather with friends at the church instead of a family meal, the Food Committee will provide refreshments only (example: cookies/ beverage) on-site. Contact the church office for more information, 770-867-4594.
