Community Care Team

OUR CHURCH HAS A NEW TEAM OF VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE ORGANIZED AND TRAINED TO PROVIDE PRACTICAL, EMOTIONAL
AND SPIRITUAL SUPPORT
TO MEMBERS OF OUR CONGREGATION AND THEIR CAREGIVERS.

What we do

The Care Team Ministry responds to the non-medical "quality of life" needs of individuals and families not routinely provided by existing social service programs. Care Teams provide social, emotional, physical and spiritual support in an individualized, flexible and responsible manner, based on concern and care for those in need.

Care is provided on a continuing or short-term basis to elderly who live alone or who depend on a single caregiver, to individuals with acute or chronic needs requiring in-home support, and to families stricken by some catastrophic need, adversity or situation.

Community Care Team Ministry provides:

• Social and emotional support through friendly visits and phone calls
• Practical support through rides to church and companionship walks
• Spiritual support through prayers and a listening ear

Who can volunteer?

Anyone can become a Care Team Member. The simple structure makes it easy to get involved and easy to stay involved. Because the ministry responds to individuals through a team effort, there is less burden on the individual team member and greater dependability to those being served.

What is asked of volunteers?

Care Team Members make a weekly commitment to calling, visiting, writing or performing other activities within their comfort level and based on their availability and interest.

Each month, Care Team Members meet to review their caring ministries. Through these team meetings, member provide each other with peer review and support. Team Members are expected to participate in the orientation and training program offered by North Port Community United Church of Christ as part of the ongoing support and supervision provided.

Team Members, and the people they serve, discover the joys of giving and receiving.
