Loving Meals is a ministry designed to give physical support through meals to people who are experiencing difficult times due to surgery, delivery of a baby, medical treatments and for many other reasons. Loving Meals volunteers are the hands and feet of Christ to the Body of Christ.
Meals are delivered to homes in disposable containers with no expectation of a visit from the person receiving the meal. Volunteers simply deliver the meal and leave. If you find yourself in need of meals, please let us know. We will work out a delivery schedule with you as well as any dietary restrictions so you can be ministered to in Christ’s love.
As you go through health challenges, welcoming babies, working through the loss of a loved one, etc. we would like to support you by relieving you from dinner responsibilities. All meals are simply delivered in disposable containers and nothing else is expected. We are happy to respect dietary needs/restrictions.
Stephen Ministry is a one-on-one, confidential ministry focused on listening, caring, and providing support during life’s challenges. When you need someone that is not quite as close to the situation you are in, a Stephen Minister can be there as a third party that will listen with no judgment toward you, your situation, or others involved in your situation. You meet with your Stephen Minister once a week for an hour. Stephen Ministers are placed with a care receiver of same gender and you are your Stephen Minister’s only care receiver. Care receivers may be going through challenges such as:
Terminal illness of a loved one
Spiritual confusion or frustration
Empty nest adjustments
Death of someone close
Loss of pregnancy
The list could go on…
A Stephen Minister is someone that will meet with you one-on-one as you go through a difficult or transitional time in life.
