Parish Caring Ministries

The Parish Caring Ministry is comprised of many different programs and activities, all of which contribute to the life of our church and the wider community. To volunteer, reach out to our Parish Caring Ministries Coordinator, April Michaud, at aprilmichaudct@comcast.net.

Do you enjoy visiting members of the church who may be alone or unable to get to church?

  • Can you make soup or a meal to bring to a member of our church?
  • Can you take a few moments to send a note of caring to someone in need?
  • Are you able to take a few moments each week to pray in your home for parishioners in need?
  • Would you like to knit or crochet a prayer shawl?

Parish Caring has set up its ministries so that, even in the midst of our busy lives, we can each take a small, manageable piece and make a very meaningful contribution to the physical, spiritual and emotional well-being of our sisters and brothers in Christ.  Will you join us?

Opportunities Include:

Parish Visitors

Members of this ministry make personal calls or visits to parishioners who are often alone, unwell, or otherwise unable to attend church.  The connections Parish Visitors help keep are greatly appreciated and offer a special way to stay connected to the church.  Many Visitors have received special training through the Pastoral Care Training Program of Hartford Hospital. They meet every other month for support, fellowship and further training.

Traveling Ministry

First Church Traveling Ministry brings our lay leaders to provide worship services for those who are unable to attend a church. We currently coordinate monthly programs at Stonebrook Village, Kimberly Hall, and Windsor Rehabilitation. Sometimes, we even dress up as you can see from the photo above!

Meals and Transportation

This members of this ministry make and deliver soup or light meals to members who are sick, home from the hospital, or recently bereaved. This is a meaningful way to fill the soul of someone who needs an uplifting gesture.  This ministry is also able to furnish rides to and from church and for local medical appointments.

Care Note Writing

The members of this ministry write notes of support and condolence to First Church members who are ill, bereaved or convalescing.

Parish Prayer Team

Upon receiving a request for prayers, members of the prayer teams offer prayers in the privacy of their own homes.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Volunteers of this ministry gather monthly for fellowship and to knit or crochet prayer shawls for members or friends of the congregation who are ill, grieving, lonely or in need of a spiritual lift. We literally wrap people in love and prayer.

Flower Committee

The members of this ministry arrange for Sunday flowers and their distribution to home-bound or convalescing church members. They also coordinate the Easter and Christmas floral displays.
