GriefShare

Each week the group will watch a video seminar. GriefShare videos cover topics essential to your recovery from the hurt of grief and loss. Each session features helpful, comforting videos and encouraging group discussion. Participants can join at any time. Each week’s topic stands alone. We meet in the Wesley Room (use canopy entrance). You may join the group at any time. Contact Phyllis Freeman, pfreeman1@new.rr.com or 920.574.2859 for further information.

 

Grief Booklets Ministry

Journeying through Grief is a series of four booklets thoughtfully prepared by Stephen Ministry which we share with church members who are experiencing the loss of a loved one. The booklets are sent at appropriately timed intervals to help the grieving during their personal journey with the hope that they will know that the loving support of the church is constant over the course of a year. Contact Nancy Stowe, 920.202.4798 for further information.

 

Befrienders

Befrienders are at work provide regular visits to those unable to attend church services, assisting with hospital visitation, serving as prayer partners during communion and between service prayer from 10:00 to 10:30 the third Sunday of every month. We also meet one on one with those who are in need of someone to walk beside them through a particularly challenging time. We also plan and lead December’s meditative Christmas service.  Because of all that we do, we have trainings in order to become a Befriender. If you feel a call to this ministry, please contact Pastor Liz Whitford.

 

Meal Train Ministry

When a family is in crisis, elation over a new baby, or the chef in the household is sick and cannot prepare meals, we as a church family like to step in and help with this basic need. If you could share a meal with a family or persons who need this type of care, come be a part of the food ministry! If you are interested in helping, or if you have any questions, please contact Judy Ulrey 920-915-7676.  If you are in need of some meals, please contact the office.

 

Health Ministry

There is a free blood pressure check and glucose screening the fourth Sunday of each month in the Wesley Room. We will be available before and after the 9am service. Just stop in, no appointment is needed. If you wish to be a part of this team, contact Dan Thibodeau 920-209-4459.

 

Traveling Tea Party

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be part of an old-fashioned tea party? Join the Traveling Tea Party as we reach out to our sisters in Christ. Once a month, we share tea, dessert and conversation with a homebound person. If you are interested in joining this ministry or have any questions, please contact Trish Hatch 920-729-1638.

 

 

Greeting Card Ministry

Are you interested in connecting with members of our church through a meaningful way? Our purpose is to minister to those who are in need of spiritual uplifting, birthday greetings to homebound members, and those suffering from illness, The Team will supply you with cards. If you are interested in helping, or if you have questions, please contact Mary Loew 920-731-5874.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy. If you enjoy knitting or crocheting, consider joining us the last Tuesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. in the Asbury Lounge. If you are interested, but cannot join us, please give us a call and we will work out a way for you to help. We need about 555 yards of washable/ dryable yarn per shawl. We also welcome the contribution of gift bags. If you have any questions, please call Carol Christenson 920-364-9399 or JoAnn DuVall 920-739-2453.

 

Inspirational Cards

Inspirational Cards are available in a card rack near Fellowship Hall. The cost of a card is 50¢. Often when the pastors lift up members of our congregation or others who are hospitalized or ill, we feel the need to send a card.  These inspirational cards are always available.  To get the addresses of those who you would like to send a card, please call the church office.

 

Transportation Ministry

Are you willing to drive someone to and from church? Some of our members are unable to drive themselves, but would love to attend. We will match you up with a person to drive to church weekly or monthly. We would love to add you to our list of drivers. Let us know when you are available and what your geographical limits are. If you are interested in helping or have any questions, please contact the church office.
