Congregational Care Ministry at Hope UMC

Our mission is to reach out in loving support to our church family in times of crisis and need, by giving concrete expression and extending the hand of God.

Card Ministry

Our Card Ministry sends cards to family members to acknowledge Births, Deaths, Illness, Baptism and Difficult Life Circumstances.


Meal Ministry

Our Meal Ministry provides meals for church families experiencing the arrival of a newborn, discharging from the hospital, or during a the loss of a loved one.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

We hand knit shawls to provide comfort to a family member who would benefit from being "wrapped in comfort and prayers".

Visitation Ministry

Our Visitation Team is truly the arms and feet of the church as they visit our church family members who find themselves in the hospital, hospice or just unable to attend church for health reasons. They offer prayer and comfort with delivery of the prayer shawl.

Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
