Caring for our members is a vital function at Westminster. We have an active Congregational Care ministry that provides care and support to our members in need. When anyone in our congregation is ill or has been hospitalized, meals are provided. If serving in this kind of ministry interests you, we are always in need of volunteers to work in teams to provide meals, make phone calls, and send cards.
In addition, we visit and make contacts with our home-bound and extended care members. They feel connected and supported by this ministry.
We also provide several other ministries as part of Congregational Care:
- Loving Arms: When there is a death in the church family, this committee makes contact with the family to provide meals and identify other needs and ways to be of support.
- New Baby Care: After a birth, we contact the family to see how we may be of support as they welcome and adjust to the new addition to their family. We arrange for a rosebud to be placed in the Sanctuary to celebrate the new birth. We also provide meals and information about baptism to the family.
Hospital Visitation: This ministry involves individuals signing up to take a week to visit church members who are in the hospital.
