Serve and Care

Our Community Care Ministry offers opportunities within Bethlehem to both give and receive care through prayer, presence and practical help. Through illness, painful loss, or challenging life transition, we strive to walk with one another in Christ-centered love, encouragement and hope.

Prayer Network consists of a team of disciples who pray confidentially for concerns and requests of our people. To learn more about our Prayer Network team, or to request prayer for yourself or loved one, please contact Judy Hanson

Home Communion Ministry consists of a team of disciples who visit and bring Holy Communion monthly to those who are no longer able to attend worship. These visits are a vital connect to our body and Christ’s love. To request the care of the Home Communion Ministry or to learn more about serving, please contact Kelly Collins.

1st Responders consists of a team of disciples committed to meeting immediate, short-term and practical needs of our congregation member, and occasionally our local community. Requests are sent to the team via email; those who are available and able to “respond”, simply reply back for information and directions. Most requests consist of the following:

  • Meals
  • Occasional rides to appointments
  • Small home repair and maintenance
  • Other immediate, material needs or access to resources
