The Church by Special Delivery/Home-bound Ministry
Mission Statement: The mission of the Church by Special Delivery/Home-bound Ministry of CUMC is to honor the homebound and the residents of nursing homes and assisted living centers and to reflect the love of God toward them and their caregivers.
Volunteers in The Church by Special Delivery/Home-bound Ministry of CUMC have attempted, since 2002, to bring the church to those who no longer visit the church. This has been done through one-on-one visits to assisted living/nursing homes, weekly worship services including monthly communion, sing-a-longs, parties, Bible study, prayer groups, arts and crafts, entertainment, delivery of flowers, and much more.
There is an opportunity for every person and every group in the church to be a part of this ministry. What is your favorite part of coming to church? Could you or your Sunday school class bring that activity to someone who can no longer come to church or perhaps present a worship service? Ask the Forum class, the PACE class, or the Footloose class how they do it or come visit a service to see what is involved. Think of what your gifts are and how others could enjoy them.
