Genesis UMC is known as a welcoming and caring community of faith. We strive to extend hospitality to our guests and love to one another when life becomes messy or painful.
Our demographics are changing. We are becoming a church of all ages. As our community grows, there is an increased need to love and care for members who unable to attend church.
As this need increases, it is becoming more of a challenge for Pastor Ham to meet the ongoing, one-to-one care that is required. Pastor Ham will continue to be on the front line of care, especially during times of crises. As people of faith, we can assist Pastor Ham by reaching out to one another in Christian love.
It’s coming…. a new Congregational Care Ministry. The Congregational Care Ministry of Genesis UMC is being formed to keep in touch with and encourage those in our church family who are unable to participate fully in the church’s life. Caring for those who cannot attend church is a gift of time and presence. Extending Christian care to one another is a ministry that we can all embrace.
The Congregational Care team members will make contact through phone calls, cards and visits. By doing this we hope to bring joy and keep our homebound or medically restricted members connected to Genesis UMC.
Lay volunteers will be equipped to provide care on behalf of Genesis UMC. Consider joining the Genesis Congregational Care Team. Classes will be offered beginning October 8 and will last 3-4 weeks. Topics covered will include prayer, boundaries, listening, visitation, and resources. Watch your bulletin and Genesis’ website for Congregational Care class information.
