CONGREGATIONAL CARE MINISTRY


LGBTQ Support Group at FPCGV

Under the guidance and support of the Congregational Care Ministry, FPCGV sponsors a support group for caregivers of LGBTQ youth. Parents, grandparents, relatives, friends and neighbors are invited to this “safe space” to share joys, concerns, strength and fears. One need not be an active member of this faith community to be a part of the group.

If you would like more information, you are invited to contact Tom Riggs or Ashley Hood at the church office or e-mail triggs@fpcgv.org or ahood@fpcgv.org

Make a Casserole!

The freezer in the Fellowship Hall is low on casseroles, and we need your help to refill it! These casseroles are delivered to individuals and families in need of some extra support. Right now, we have individuals who have recently returned home from the hospital and a new foster family who need our support!

Some basic instructions:
Prepare a casserole of your choice and pleace in a 8 or 9 inch square disposable pan
Place plastic wrap directly on the food surface, the cover with foil.
Attach to the foil covering an index card that includes the date the casserole was made, the ingredients, and heating instructions.
Place the casserole(s) in the white upright freezer in the Fellowship Hall.

How Congregational Care helps...

Congregational Care provides support and comfort for members of our church family who are in need. We provide meals and transportation for people who are ill, grieving the loss of a loved one or homebound.

We have a frozen casserole program for members, friends and potential new members as identified by church staff.  And we have greeting cards available in the Narthex to help  our congregation stay in touch with one another.

Volunteers use an online CareCalendar to coordinate schedules and menus, and to communicate with recipients.  As with all Ministry Teams, Congregational Care relies on the Holy Spirit to call to our attention to ways and places to serve in the spirit of love and compassion.

For more information, contact Associate Pastor Ashley Hood.


CareCalendars

CareCalendar is a web based system to organize meals and other help for individuals and families during a time of illness or life changing event, such as the birth of a baby or death of a family member.

CareCalendars allow the person needing care to deliniate their needs and people offering care to supply exactly what a person might need. 

When a need arises, this office sends out an e-mail to those interested in helping. If you would like to be on the Care Calendar distribution list, please contact Jill Compton or Associate Pastor Ashley Hood at the church office.
