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
