Few people can resist the excitement and anticipation that comes with receiving a hand-written envelope and card in the mail. That's because the sharing of a greeting card opens a little window in a person's heart- both of the send and the receiver!
Care that is felt and then expressed, is like fruit from the vine that delights the heart, nourishes the spirit, and brings needed strength to the soul. Our desire is that our cards express the love that flows from God's heart into our hearts and out to the hearts of others.
The Caring Connections card ministry mission is to convey the love and hope that are found in Jesus Christ. Each card includes scripture verses and personal messages that we hope speak words of encouragement to speak to each indiviual's needs. Our goal is to offer true hope and encouragement by letting them know our church is praying for them and their needs.
Iva Rogers and Sonja Taylor head this ministry. They meet each week at the church and review weekly and monthly prayer lists. Cards are sent to the sick, those in the hospital, nursing homes or homebound, the grieving, and those facing life's difficulties who need to be lifted up.
To have a card mailed to someone, submit their name and address in the offering plate, making sure it is marked "Caring Connection". You may also give the information to Iva, Sonja, or Lisa Crase by emailing .
