Jesus called in homes to understand people’s needs and
to communicate his concern and caring.
“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you should love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another. (John 13:34-35)”
Visiting is one way to show concern and caring
for our members and friends.
Central Union Church addresses visiting and caring in numerous ways. Chaplain Bill Crockett is our Chaplain of Visitation. Our ordained ministers also participate in visitation, but cannot perform the entire visitation required of our large congregation without assistance from the lay leaders of the church. The Deacons and Deaconesses provide an invaluable service to our members and friends requiring visitation. Ruth Stepulis acts as referral person to ministers, lay leadership and members and friends.
Are you aware of a member or friend who may benefit from our visitation program? Do you feel you may benefit from our visitation program? If so, please call the church office and ask to be referred to Rev. Rivers or Rev. Duran.
We should remember that caring is central to our Christian faith. Would you care to be involved in our visiting and caring activities by becoming a deacon or deaconess? This would be an opportunity to express concern and compassion to our members and friends. If so, contact the church council and we will get you in touch with our head deacon or head deaconess.
