Care Team starts Year 2 – more ‘Lunch ‘n’ Learn’ coming

January 15, 2015 marked the one-year anniversary of the Care Team Ministry here at St. Matthew’s.

We are a faithful group of 30 parish members who provide compassion and support to fellow parishioners by making phone calls, sending cards or personal notes, and visiting those who are unable to attend services at church. Five teams, comprised of four or five people, rotate weekly all year to offer support on behalf of our parish family. By December 2014, we made more than 420 contacts to our parishioners. We knew we were responding to a special need when we received thank-you cards and letters from many of these recipients.

We have begun planning more “Lunch and Learn” programs. Watch for announcements about these popular programs in the coming months. We will also evaluate what services we may introduce to enhance the care currently provided. The Care Team community met on Tuesday, January 27 to share ideas and make plans for our second year of service to the parish.

If you are interested or have a question about the Care Team, please contact Sarah Johansen at 499-0249 or Mickey Peck at 802-0352.
