Pastoral Care Commission
The Pastoral Care Commission works directly with the Rector in overseeing the ministries of pastoral care in the congregation including, but not limited to, Lay Eucharist Ministry, Encouragement, Hospital Visitation, and Pastor's Aide. This Commission is convened by Interim Rector, The Rev. Betty M. Glover. The Vestry Liaison is Kelly Frohbose. The commission meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. in the Parlor. Your participation is welcome. The following ministries are supported by the Pastoral Care Commission. We welcome you to pray about how God may be calling you to take a part.
Flower Delivery Guild
Immediately following the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, members of the Flower Delivery Guild deliver help to take the flowers from the altar and deliver them to those who are in the hospital, shut-in, or sick. This ministry enables those who are not able to attend services to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of our worship in some small way and helps them know of the prayer of the whole community for their health and salvation. Contact Tom Parker, 442-1134.
Special Meals Ministry
Good Shepherd seeks to respond to the normal life events of members where a helping hand is appreciated: birth, illness, death, disasters, hospitalization and other special circumstances. Members of Pastors' Aide help deliver meals at home and provide simple receptions after burial services. Contact The Rev. Betty Glover, 442-1134.
The Encouragement ministry supports and prays for any individual on our church's prayer list and their loved ones. Members of the Encouragement Ministry write notes of encouragement to the sick and live up the needy in prayer. Boo White, 443-3220
Lay Eucharist Ministry
This is an ancient ministry, revived from a common practice in the early church of taking consecrated bread and wine home to those who could not be present for common owrship. Lay Eucharist Ministers are sent out from the Sunday services to take the consecrated elements, prayers and readings for the day to any parishoner who cannot be at church and wishes to partake in Eucharist Life. The Rev. Betty Glover, 442-1134 x 230.
Daily Morning Prayer
The first order of business for any Christian is prayer. Lay persons read Morning Prayer in the church every day of the week (except Wednesday). At this service everyone on our daily and Sunday prayer list is rememberd at the altar of Good Shepherd. There is a group of almost 10 persons who partake in this ministry and each person ends up officiating once or twice a month. The Rev. Betty Glover, 442-1134 x 230.
Lay persons read the brief service of Compline in their own home. This is a quiet ministry whereby members of the church agree to read this brief service of prayer and lift up all persons on our daily prayer list just before they close out the day and retire to bed. This supports our belief that prayer has power no matter where it is being said or done. The Rev. Betty Glover, 442-1134 x 230.
Our clergy will provide visits as needed for the sick, housebound, dying or any other special needs. Please let the church office know when you are in the hospital or in need of a pastoral visit. Local hospitals do not call the church to let us know that members have been admitted and we rely on you to let us know. The Rev. Betty Glover, 442-1134 x 230.
