Health and Welfare Ministry

Making Christ’s Love Tangible

Health and Welfare Volunteers offer their friendship and assistance to the homebound, bereaved and those who are physically or emotionally stressed.  Some of the ways they are able to help are:

  • Being a Buddy to someone who is physically limited to home
  • Providing Meals following a surgery or severe illness
  • Delivering DVDs of the worship service to homebound members
  • Hosting Memorial Service Receptions, when needed
  • Working to coordinate transportation to Worship Services.


If you know someone who could benefit from Health and Welfare Ministry
or would like to volunteer, contact the Church Office.


Matthew 11:25-30   Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Singing the Blues OR Sinking in the Blues:

Understanding the difference between feeling a little blue or

feeling as though I’m sinking in the blues of sadness.

Dr. Drew Maygren, Board Certified General and Geriatric Psychiatrist, and Attending Physician

at the Banner Del E. Webb inpatient SAGE unit, will be speaking on this topic as he explains:

“Depression can be an acceptable and appropriate component of life’s daily challenges. We

expect feelings like this with setbacks or losses in our lives. We should be vigilant as to their

progression and course. If these feelings begin to cause impairment in our daily functioning,

however, they have now become clinically significant and warrant professional assistance.

Please come share some time with me as we discuss these warning signs,

as well as appropriate ways to manage them when they do occur.”
