Jesus’ ministry was not reserved for temple or synagogue. Though by right he could have enjoyed the privileges of royalty, he took upon himself the form of a servant. His compassion knew no bounds.
First United Methodist Church members who serve in congregational care are reaching out to shut-ins, those hospitalized, and nursing home residents. The opportunities for service include visitation, casserole ministry, reading, styling hair for female nursing home residents, distributing church bulletins and Upper Room devotion publications, or simply demonstrating a Barnabas spirit of encouragement.
With the addition of more volunteers willing to become servants, we will be able to share the love of Christ in more ways and to more people. Congregational care is not limited to current projects. If you feel God moving you to reach out to people within the congregation or our community, contact the pastor on where to begin sharing God’s gift of love.
This is the message you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. 1 John 3:11
