Arms Around Committee
Facilitating pastoral care
To facilitate pastoral services among members, this committee is organized to coordinate the process of connecting members with needs to the Minister, or to members who can help. Examples of services include transportation, meals, child care, hospital and home visits, minor home maintenance or repairs, companionship, support during crises, and bereavement support.
Notifying the congregation
The on-call committee member for the month furnishes information to the newsletter editor about hospitalizations, illnesses, births, deaths, marriages, or other events of importance, with the approval of the individuals involved.
An Arms Around fund is available for members’ special needs.
