Through hospital or home visits, grief healing, nursing and other mediums, this ministry supports those who are in need of care both physically and emotionally.
This ministry represents three areas:
- Hospital Ministry – The hospital ministry is commissioned by Jesus Christ in His admonition to visit the sick and shut in. We perceive our mission as comforting those that are hospitalized and also offering prayers for their quick recovery. Members are trained by the hospital and after completion of training are given a hospital photo identification enabling them to administer to patients.
- Home Visitation – Once a month a team of Parishioners visits with the sick, elderly and /or housebound.
- Grief Healing Group - This group is for the bereaved. We meet as the needs arise. Grief is a journey and requires work; we help each other to get through this journey.
The name; means found of good works and alms deeds. The life of Dorcas, her given name was Tabitha, found in Acts 9:36 is an inspiration for this kind of effort. Her works for the Lord was for the poor, sick and needy, and she blessed people with her kindness, compassion and love. We are a committee that follows in the footsteps of Tabitha and we care for the poor, sick and needy.
We see our primary role in the church as supporting the health needs of our parishioners and we do this by providing health information and offering proper medical advice when advisable. We minister emergency first aid when necessary, during worship, until medical authorities arrive.
