TLC Visitation Ministry is multifaceted. The ministry includes contact with those in hospitals, those that are home bound, and those that are in care facilities.
If you would like to be apart of the Visitation Team, CLICK HERE to fill out the application. Here are some comments from people involved in this ministry:
“I got involved with the TLC Hospital Visitation Team because I wanted an opportunity to pray for, comfort and be a blessing to others. What I quickly discovered however, is that as often as I pray for, comfort, or bless a patient, they do the same for me in return!” -J.D.
“People seem happily surprised to learn their church family is aware they are in the hospital. It can be a place of such fear; where faith can hit a brick wall. So I go, I listen, I pray and I offer a little encouragement, when needed. It’s that simple. No specials skill required, but the blessing I receive is REAL! It never gets old!”-C.F.
Sonshine Ministry prepares and delivers home-cooked meals to those who are ill, recovering from illness or surgery, and new parents. These meals are intended for those who do not have the resources or connections to provide their own meals. Learn more HERE.
