Congregational Care

Congregational Care

The Meeting House seeks to provide fellowship opportunities for members to come to better know one another, as well as to provide care for those in crisis.

Care in Crisis: Deacons can coordinate occasional meals for those recovering from illness or surgery, and Stephen Ministers are available for those going through a tough time. Deacons can also help coordinate transportation to worship services for those unable to drive, and visit with our homebound members. Please let our pastors know if you are in the hospital or have other pastoral care needs.

Fellowship: In addition to various fellowship groups, the church hosts an annual gala, a church picnic, and occasional fellowship meals and seasonal activities. All members and visitors are also invited to fellowship hour (with coffee and snacks) following the 11:00 a.m. Sunday service, and to Lemonade on the Lawn after worship during the summer.

Stephen Ministry

Many of us struggle to find peace and meaning in our lives, especially during challenging or transitional times in life, such as loss of a loved one, or job, or transitions following divorce. Our highly trained lay Stephen Ministers provide confidential, one-to-one care to individuals in our congregation and community. Care recipients often find that sharing their struggles brings relief, and they feel less alone. If you would like general information on Stephen Ministry, visit www.stephenministries.org. If you would like to arrange to meet privately with a Meeting House Stephen Minister, please contact one of the pastors.
