Shepherds Team

The Biblical image of “shepherding” gives us images of a person who cares for a flock.  Our “Shepherds” are men and woman who share their love of Christ by caring for our congregation.  They communicate faith, encouragement, and compassion with cards and letters, providing meals and transportation, maintain contact and occasionally celebrate communion with home-bound members and members in nursing homes.


One particular ministry is the sharing of “prayer shawls.”  Members of the congregation create beautiful crocheted shawls.  The Shepherds pray over the shawls on behalf of those who receive them—members and non-members alike.  The shawls warm and comfort their recipients and remind them that others care for them.
