Our member-volunteers are actively involved in bringing flowers, writing personal cards, making personal visits and providing meaningful gifts from the church to our members at special times in their lives.
We visit members in health care facilities or at home, make calls of condolence and sympathy and assist at Memorial and Funeral services.
The mission of the Christian Care Ministry is to be a church family in action for our members. We work through four teams to:
* Listen to, grieve with, and minster to our members face to face, one person and one situation at a time,
* Pray for those on the Friends & Family Prayer list.
LAY VISITATION MINISTRY
Our Lay Visitation Ministry team includes church members who are committed to providing care and assistance as needed or just a friendly face to our church members. Members who are seen by our lay care visitors may be dealing with health or bereavement issues, may be homebound, living in a care facility or would just enjoy a visit or call to keep them connected to LPC.
LPC has a very active Prayer Chain
It is composed of several LPC members as well as all current Session Members. The Session would like to invite additional members of the Congregation to join in this most tender and wonderful task. Your job, when notified, will be to personally pray for the affected persons. You will find yourself growing closer to God as you more frequently talk to Him in prayer. There are always copies of the prayer list located in the Narthex for those who want a full updated copy to pray over. After all PRAYER WORKS!
The Stephen Ministry
Formally certified trained volunteers provide a regular long-term personal care through sympathetic and understanding listening. Stephen Ministers care for those in the congregation, as well as others, who are going through a difficult time in their lives, through a one-hour confidential visit once a week.
"Cooks who Care" is an upcoming ministry through the Christian Caring Team and we need your help to make it a success. Enjoy cooking? Baking? Have experience with leading an effort like this in the past? We hope to develop a team of people who can be called on periodically to make and take meals to those in need or transition. If you have an interest in being a part of this vital ministry, please contact Bill Thorpe at (843) 706-2729 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prayerful Stitches Ministry. The Christian Caring Team has started a prayer shawl ministry at LPC called Prayerful Stitches! We hope to provide prayer shawls as a symbol of Christ's care to people in a range of seasons in life whether for comfort, joy, or gratitude. If you knit or crochet and are interested in sharing your talents with this fulfilling ministry, please contact Sandy Tanner at email@example.com with any questions.
LPC has a medical lending closet for those in the community needing medical equipment. We have walkers, canes, crutches, shower chairs, etc. If you are in need of any of these supplies, or if you have equipment you no longer need you would like to donate, please contact the church office.
