Purpose: To provide a multi-faceted support and compassionate caring to church members in their time of need.
One way we do this is through a prayer ministry which involves a prayer chain and prayer shawls. The prayer chain involves several members who address urgent prayer requests. Prayer shawls are large or small and may be given when a person is faced with a life altering event such as a serious surgery, accident or death of someone close. Small pocket shawls are also available to anyone who wants one to enrich their prayer life.
Support is provided to members during their illness or difficult circumstances in the form of meals, transportation to doctors or other needed professionals, and visits/phone calls from church members. Remembrance cards and a phone tree of members are used to make contact with members with special circumstances.
Finally, there is an active Singles Group which meets periodically for various activities. These include dinner, movie, concert in Charlotte, and walks in local parks and greenways.
