Love God. Love people. Change the world!
Made up of people who have a passion to be an extension of Christ’s love and the pastoral ministry of the local Church in a variety of ways.
SOSM Care Teams are made up of people who have a passion to be an extension of Christ’s love and the pastoral ministry of the local Church in a variety of ways. These include: Hospital Visitation Team, Serving Hands Team, Shut-in Visitation Team and Connect Team. Team members are trained according to the ministry need. These teams provide a wonderful opportunity to release Christ’s love through a personal visit, offering prayer, serving communion, bringing a meal, fellowship and cheer, or facilitating connection to the SOS family.
This is a great way to get involved in one-on-one ministry and to exercise spiritual gifts and natural talents for the benefit of all!
This team is involved in personal visits to those hospitalized or in a nursing home setting for prayer, fellowship, and support to the family in time of crisis.
Serving hands team
This "helps" ministry prepares meals for our SOSM family members that may be sick, hospitalized, convalescing, or have experienced a death in the family. It’s a great opportunity to minister physical as well as spiritual food for support and comfort in time of need.
Shut in visitation
This encompasses visits to those who are unable to attend services and church-related activities due to medical conditions or prolonged immobility. These are great opportunities to extend love and fellowship to the isolated through a regular personal visit, the serving of communion, and possibly engaging them in a light-hearted activity.
This team is the warm, welcoming face of SOSM that new visitors will encounter. Their initial goal is to get to know visitors and acquaint them with the Pastoral team and with the full spectrum of ministries we have for them and their families. As relationships grow, the Care Team will help them connect with avenues of expression for their gifts and talents, enabling them to discover a fuller, richer church family experience.
