Called to Care

I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. - John 13: 34-35

Beginning in 2007, a group of fifteen caring St. John's members responded to an invitation to become a Called to Care Team. We became trained in visiting and listening skills. This team engages in the ministry of reaching out to the members and friends of St. John's who are in need of caring friends during the difficult times in their lives. The team has been visiting shut-ins, making hospital visits, providing meals and just recently sending care packages to our service men.

The intent of this team is to reinforce the visitations of the pastor and to respond as friends to those who need a "caring" presence. The team is planning to continue to offer training sessions to interested persons who would like to learn more about what is involved in this ministry. After attending the training sessions, if those persons choose to join this team, there will be a commissioning service. For more information please contact the Church Office, Pastor Mark or Coordinators Bonnie Mellott.
