This ministry is a wonderful opportunity to reach out to our church family, as well as to those in our community. If you know of someone in need or are interested in volunteering for this important ministry, please contact The Reverend Richard Shippee through our office. We have volunteers that will make every effort to see that the need is fulfilled.
Here are some of the areas in which we can minister:
•Provide transportation to doctor appointments, stores, etc.
•Provide “emergency” child care
•Visit shut-ins, or hospital patients
•Give to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund so that she can help with heating bills and other large expenses for needy families.
•Provide meals when someone in the family is sick
•Run errands (groceries, p/u prescriptions, etc)
Remember, this ministry is not limited to our church family. If you know of a neighbor in need, “Emmanuel” may have the resources to help. Contact the office for information 658-1506.
