Acts of Compassion Through Service
Sick & Bereavement Ministry
Our busy ACTS Ministry is expanding! Every Cornerstone member can take part: from visiting the sick or home-bound, to serving meals at funeral luncheons, knitting prayer shawls for the sick, or simply praying for others. Please consider sharing your gifts with your fellow sisters and brothers in their time of need. If you would like to participate please contact the church office at 813-757-6123.
WHAT WE DO:
We provide short-term support to children and adults with serious illness or an upcoming surgery and families suffering a loss.
Contact patient/family to discuss wants & needs;Deliver gifts, meals, prayer cards, etc.; and relay any additional needs to other members as needed such as Prayer Chain, Meals, etc.
Volunteers provide support to home-bound members on a regular basis with extended illnesses including: visiting and providing a supportive presence.
Funeral Reception Team:
Provide lunch receptions following funeral services at New Hope @ the Cornerstone. Members can choose one, some or all of these duties and participate as they are available: set-up and decorate, prepare meals, serve, and/or clean-up. No regular or long-term commitment required.
FISHES & LOAVES:
Provide meals for families in crisis and those recovering from surgery, etc. and relay any additional needs of the family to other members.
