We are challenged to keep the contact to the homebound ministry going strongly, and ask that anyone who has time and interest in making visitations to the homebound during the day please contact the Deacons. Chuck Radke and Mable Seymour will continue visitations once a month and assist the new Deacons as they come on board in 2012.

Deacons participate in God’s work in many ways, distributing food to our neighbors in need, repairing homes in the community, building a school in the Dominican Republic (as Dorrit Nelson plans to do this summer), driving church members to appointments, visiting our homebound members with love, hugs and news of the church or preparing a meal for members who are sick or just over-whelmed with good or bad events in their lives.
Sometimes the Deacons manage an event or drive at the church. What do you think would be the best method of informing everyone at the church about an upcoming activity? Please let one of us or Chip know your thoughts.
The card ministry sent out 44 greetings in January, ranging from birthdays and congratulations to comfort and support. We reach out to let you know the church and God’s love surround you at all times.
