So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10
After more than 12 years of service to members of the United Parish congregation, the Hearts and Hands Ministry team is in need of ideas and suggestions on how we can best update our program and successfully engage more people as care givers and as “users”.
As an active group of volunteers we appreciate this opportunity to get to know others in the congregation better while taking on tasks that suit our individual schedules and interests. We provide support, comfort and care for our UP family during times of celebration and joy, sickness and healing. Among other things, our efforts have included preparing meals for families welcoming a new baby or folks recovering from hospital stays, providing transportation to medical appointments and running errands, knitting prayer shawls and baptism mittens or making blankets for new babies and college-bound high school seniors and writing cards to people lifting them up in prayer or acknowledging their celebrations. But we are always interested in learning about other ways we can be helpful and how we can encourage more people to join us.
