Congregational Care

Congregational Care is extended with members and friends through a faithful team of people who provide care, comfort, and temporary services.

Our Care and Share Ministry visits those who are unable to attend Worship, delivers weekly recordings of the Worship Service, offers prayers with the hospitalized and homebound.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry crochets and knits hand made shawls that are shared with those who are in crisis, homebound, or healing.  The Prayer Shawls also include a beautiful prayer for the person to read after the Pastor or a Care and Share Visitor leaves.  The Prayer Shawls are blessed by the congregation during Worship.

First Church also follows each family after a funeral with Grief care cards and in January a very special Sunday Worship we remember those who have died in the past year and give God thanks for their life!

A very special birthday cared ministry ensures that all of our members 70 years old and older receive an annual birthday card from the church.
