ShareTheCare was designed to guide the formation and coordination of supportive teams to prevent burnout of an individual caring for a loved one. Our church has adapted the model for coordinating caregiving that engages a team to care for an entire community.
We began implementing ShareTheCare (STC) during a time when our church was between pastors. We saw this as a resource to provide self-care in the absence of pastoral leadership. It has become a vital lay ministry. working alongside the pastor. To get involved (click here), and please speak to Mindy Lackey.
Pat Young and Karen Wood lead our weekly Sunday School and welcome your involvement.
Adult Bible Study
Adult bible study meets Sunday mornings at 10 am. Nadina Grants is the coordinator. Additional studies take place in Lent and on special occasions after worship. Speak to the Pastor.
The Youth Group meets on occasional Sundays after church for reflection, sharing and fellowship. Speak to Luis Gallego or Pastor Jack Lohr.
Vacation Bible School
Michelle Loeb and David Barnett coordinate our VBS, but it takes the dedication and hard work of many volunteers. Speak to them to get involved. Though the event lasts just one week, our volunteers work tirelessly the prior months preparing for VBS. So much work goes on behind the scenes to allow everything else to move smoothly. Our volunteers include elders, deacons, youth group members, congregation members, and community volunteers. Last summer we hosted 40 children.
