Our Caring Teams help meet the practical and spiritual needs of the community.
The English as a Second Language volunteers meet each Thursday during the school year to assist those for whom English is not their first language. They provide friendship, music, food and instruction in conversational English in a relaxed and loving environment.
The GriefShare volunteers are a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside those facing one of life’s most difficult experiences. The 13 week session is offered several times a year and additional information is available at griefshare.org.
The Homebound Visitation volunteers visit those members who are no longer able to attend church whether they are still in their homes or in local assisted living facilities or nursing homes. They serve as a vital link to the outside world and offer friendship, compassion, and listening for these who can no longer be out and about.
The Prayer Ministry includes intercessory prayer for our weekly services and activities, for those who request confidential prayer through the Prayer Line (706.896.0806) and home prayer groups who meet periodically throughout the month to pray generally and for specific needs.
Caring for the Caregiver
There are many people in our church and community who are nearly full-time care-givers for a loved-one in their lives. As such, they are basically as home-bound as the person they are caring for. Our Caring for the Caregivers ministry is aimed at enlisting and training caring people to provide periods of temporary relief for these care-givers so that they may have some “off-time” for themselves.
The Hope Clothes Closet
The Hope Clothes Closet serves clients from the surrounding communities by providing them with high-quality clothing. Clients are welcome to visit on Tuesdays & Thursdays, 1-3 p.m. Donations are also accepted during these days/hours. Clothes are provided free of charge or for a simple donation.
