Serve in a way that makes our community a better place.
The Lay Chaplain Ministry exists to honor Jesus and demonstrate His love to our community by serving both believers and non-believers through visitation, prayer, and the sharing of Holy Scriptures.
Our goal is to minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those who are in hospitals, convalescent facilities, and rehabilitation centers. If you have a heart for this ministry, we need you to be the hands and feet of Jesus in not just hearing the cries no one else is hearing but doing something to meet the needs. Contact our church office on how to become involved.
- 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:30 p.m. in Volunteer Central or Multipurpose Room
