Helping Hands Ministry: This ministry will be working under Caring Ministry. We have noticed a need in our congregation for some “Helping Hands”. We will be available to congregation members on an as need, usually short term, basis. The needs could be due to surgery, new baby, broken bone, respite, etc. We could help with cooking or bringing in a meal, grocery shopping, light housekeeping or laundry, picking up library books, reading aloud, having a short devotion, etc. We will be contacting people who signed up under Visiting Ill or Homebound Members and Plan and Help on Caring Activities. If you need a Helping Hand or willing to be a Helping Hand contact Joan Anderson.
