Helping us to be a Caring Community

“There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed.” ~ Albert Schweitzer

“Service is nothing but love in work clothes.” ~ Anonymous

“Whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it.” ~ Ghandi

Who We Are

We are a network of volunteers who are available upon request to all members and friends in our congregation. We perform our activities in communication with the ministers.

What We Do

  • With sufficient notice, we can be in touch with people on a regular basis or when support is most needed with cards, phone calls, or visits.
  • Arrange for transportation to services and medical appointments
  • We will visit at home, in a hospital, or in a nursing facility.
  • We can arrange for meals to be delivered.
  • We offer support groups as needed.

You are not alone.
