Our purpose is to provide a connection with the church to our members who can no longer attend church. Many of our members are very lonely with family out of town or no longer have family. The members of our team make contact by phone, by visiting, and by sending cards on special occasions. This is done on a monthly basis and it is a very meaningful way to serve our Lord. Meets 1st Mondays 5:30 PM in the Chapel. Contact: Phyllis Rector, email@example.com or 734-482-8999.
Focusing on helping people connect at church, this team meets monthly to discuss projects that will encourage a welcoming culture in our congregation. Contact: Elaine Shaw, firstname.lastname@example.org.
