To provide short-term, non-medical assistance to parishioners
and referral service to non-parishioners.
We most often:
- provide rides to doctor appointments and medical procedures
- provide rides and/or assistance with grocery shopping
- visit with home bound parishioners
- provide meals to parishioners in need
Some of our ministry members like to drive. Some like to prepare meals. Some do both. When requests for assistance come in, an email is sent to all ministry members. If the request is something you want to do, just respond to the email and you will be sent details. Most of the time, the site www.signupgenius.com is used when needs are ongoing.
All services are confidential, and the ministry endeavors to uphold the dignity of each person and, where applicable, encourages them on the path to self sufficiency.
Volunteers serve when they are able. No specific commitment.
We have one optional meeting a year for information sharing and socializing.
Contact Rachael Schuler or call and leave a message at the church, 704-543-7677 x 1013.
