Shepherding: “Many hands make light work.”
The Shepherd Ministry comes from a desire by lay members to help congregation members and others who are in need of short term assistance with meals, transportation or errands, a visit or a check-in phone call.
Information about members’ needs comes from the clergy, the church office, and the laity. We encourage you to contact Father Wil Keith, Assistant Rector Sandy Moyle, or Suzy Jayroe in the church office if you or someone you know needs Shepherd’s care.
The Shepherds Ministry is growing with the needs of the parish and it is specializing. This vital ministry welcomes all who feel called to help others.
- Transportation Shepherds transport people to an appointment, or take them on errands – to pick up a prescription or groceries, etc.
- Meal Shepherds cook and take a meal to a member or family in crisis.
Phone Friends make weekly check- in phone calls on behalf of the church to those who are homebound or reside in a specialized facility and are unable to make it to church.
