At John Knox Presbyterian Church we are a community that ministers to those in the church family who are experiencing special needs.
The leaders of this team oversee visits to elderly home bound and those in nursing facilities. They visit on a regular basis, deliver altar flowers, and also serve communion. Part of this team is our Prayer Shawl Ministry. Shawls are knitted or crocheted by church members to be given to those who are experiencing illness, grief, etc.
This team stays in contact with the church family by sending cards to those who are ill or have had surgery, to college students, and to those with notable birthdays and anniversaries.
This team prepares bereavement meals and a reception in the event of the death of someone in the church family. They also are on call to prepare meals in cases of emergency, such as sudden illness or surgery.
Intercessory Prayer Team
The members on this team are in deliberate prayer for the specific needs in our church family. These prayer requests are received and shared with those on the team CONFIDENTIALLY.
