Grace Care Team
Resource teams for Grace care team
Grace Community Church wants to meet needs of the elderly shut-ins, people on our cancer prayer list, and new widows/widowers.
If you would like to participate in this ministry, join one or more of our teams. Being on the volunteer list doesn't obligate you to meet every request. We hope our teams are large enough to spread the work around - and the joy. Use your talents only when you are available.
Prayer Partners (2 per person)
Be responsible to have weekly contact with one person assigned to you to check on how they are, be a listening ear, and discern physical- or companionship- or spiritual needs. Pray with the person. This can be done by phone, cards, or visits. Bigger needs that you can't meet can be passed on to our Grace Care Team leader.
When an individual needs transportation to church or perhaps a medical appointment, members of this team would provide transportation.
Meals and food gifts
When circumstances make it a short-term challenge for those in need to prepare meals for themselves, this team of volunteers would organize and make meals. Perhaps there will be opportunity to make or bake something for a birthday or anniversary, or perhaps a holiday gift such as Christmas or Easter, based on appropriateness for individual's situation.
This team will be called on to organize and provide simple home repairs. Sign up as an individual or as a care group. Does not obligate you to pay for the expenses of the project.
Each of these teams will have a leader to disperse the requests. You need only use your talents when you are available.
