NEIGHBOR IN NEED MINISTRY On occasion, needs arise within our congregation that are beyond the capabilities of the immediate family, extended family or resources. The Neighbor in Need Ministry will be comprised of folks who would be willing to be notified by text or email when such a need arises. Examples might be helping with yard work for a shut in, assisting a family as they move, or picking up an elderly member from a doctor’s appointment. Less urgent needs would be communicated via email and more urgent needs by text. If the need doesn’t match your skill set or availability, you would simply disregard. We may not be able to meet every request but will help when we can. If you are willing to receive such communications, please email Lisa Tyger with Neighbor in Need in the subject line and your name, preferred email address and cell phone number.
