Prayer shawls are knit by members of the congregation and sent to those in special need of prayer along with a card and prayer. Blankets are also knit for babies who are baptized.
The church bus, driven by volunteers, provides transportation to worship services for members living in retirement centers
Some members living at home depend on others for rides to and from church and fellowship activities. They may also need rides for shopping and medical appointments. Members with cars regularly offer rides to church for non-drivers.
In conjunction with the minister, someone from the CCC visits with homebound members and others in need of a visit each month. They also assist with the distribution of our Visitor Packets.
