Barnabas Caregiving Ministry
Just recently, Pastor Mark talked about how when SOTP started we had about 4 shut ins. Now we currently have about 55 people who are pretty much confined to their homes or in a care facility. One of the ways we minister to these brothers and sisters in Christ is through our SOTP Barnabas Caregiving Ministry. This is a ministry of love and listening for our shut ins; those who are in their homes, in care facilities or in the hospital. Our Barnabas Ministers make in person visits where possible about once a month and take communion with us. When we cannot visit in person, we make phone calls to catch up and see that all is good.
We would like to invite you to come and find out more about this exciting ministry. No special requirements, other than a caring heart and a listening ear are needed. We are hosting a training session on Saturday,May 14 from 9 to 1 pm, including lunch. Come and see what Barnabas is all about and if this is a good ministry fit for you. To sign up, or to find out more, please contact Donna Kelly at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the church office, 847-669-9448. Hope to see you May 14.
