Care Ministry Service

At Valley, we have many opportunities for you to care for others. 

 

Faithful Hands

Faithful Hands seeks to minister the love of Christ to the elderly, single mothers, or any other person needing help, first in our church, and then reaching into our community. We seek to use good works in an open-ended commitment so that we come to understand each individual person in need deeply and profoundly and so that we guarantee that their needs will be met. We meet in Room 206 the second Saturday of every month at 6:45 a.m. for one hour to connect with team members, build relationships and review lists of work items. Then, we spend two hours with our care receivers, developing a caring relationship through prayer and assisting with household and/or yard projects. For more information, contact the Care Ministry office.

 

Meal Ministry Team

Do you love to cook, and to bless others through meals? We have a team of people who prepare and deliver meals to people experiencing health crises. To volunteer or learn more about this creative and fun way to encourage and bless others, contact Laura Costley.

      

Care Ministers 

This ministry is a lay ministry program that equips people to provide Christian care to those experiencing all kinds of life needs and circumstances. Through a confidential one-on-one caring relationship with a trained care ministry volunteer of the same gender, someone experiencing challenging times can receive the love, care and support that they need. For more information, contact Laura Costley.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer shawls, gifts from Valley Community Baptist Church, are available for anyone who is experiencing illness, grief or going through a difficult time. If you know someone that you think would like to have a prayer shawl, or if you would like to join this ministry by knitting or crocheting a shawl from home, please contact Ruth Hutchings. Yarn and instructions are provided.

 

Memorial Service Reception Volunteer 

Assist with setting up the reception stations for drinks, food, plates, utensils, etc. (approximately a two- hour time commitment per memorial service). Contact Laura Costley for more information.

 

Visitation

Help with hospital, nursing home, or shut-in visitation (approximately two hours per month). Training is required. Please contact the Care Ministry office for more information.
