Care & Prayer Ministry
The Care Ministry focuses on prayer and service with the goal of meeting the personal and spiritual needs of our church family.
Our prayer warriors are dedicated to lifting one another up in prayer weekly, hoping to get as many of our congregation as possible involved. There is no doubt that a prayerful church is a healthy one. “Prayer Proceeds Process” and as it says in Philippians 4: 6 “In everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
HOME VISITS & MEALS
This team provides home visits and meals for those facing difficult situations If one of our members is homebound for any reason and is in need of a meal or just company, we want to respond. Caring for one another should be a shared blessing and our mandate as a church. As it says in 1Peter 5:2 “Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care.”
COVERED IN PRAYER – PRAYER SHAWLS
A group of ladies gather together on 4th Friday of each month in the Blue Ridge area to knit, crochet, and fellowship. Coffee and snacks are provided. The love of knitting and crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry. Prayer garments are given to those who attend The Ridge for illness/medical procedures/recovery, bereavement, or to celebrate the birth of a child. If you would like to join this ministry of care or would like to request a garment, please contact Pam Dotson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
