It is our desire to care for each of our members through their time of need. Through these ministries we also provide opportunities for you to grow in faith as you serve the community through care ministries.
Visitation Caregivers - Members with specific skills and training assist those who are unable to leave their homes. They pray for them daily, phone weekly, and visit them each month. When possible and desired, Holy Communion is also arranged.
Hospital Visitors - A skilled team of Sheridan members visit those hospitalized, providing sensitive care to the patient and their families. These former pastors and lay ministers are a liaison between those hospitalized and the pastors on a daily basis to assure support, prayer, communion and pastoral visits.
Nourishing Each Other Meal Ministry - This caring ministry offers delivery of meals to those returning home from the hospital (whether for illness or the joyful arrival of a baby) and to those who are homebound or going through treatments.
Bus Drivers & Assistants - The Sheridan bus makes rounds to help our elderly attend worship, special services, and church activities. Men and women with a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) drive the bus. Safety training is provided for assistants who help in loading, unloading, care and safe transfer into the church. For more information or to arrange for the bus please contact Brenda Carpenter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayer Shawl/Lap Robe - This ministry is for those who need to be wrapped, comforted and prayed for while undergoing cancer treatments or other life challenges. Blessings and prayers are knitted into every Shawl while meditation calms and enriches the soul. Learning and teaching knitting and crocheting provides fellowship and intergenerational bonding.
