Parish Caring Ministries

Parish Caring Ministries offers unique opportunities to serve First Church. If you are interested in serving others, there is a special place for you.

  • Do you enjoy visiting the elderly, sick or lonely?
  • Can you make a meal or drive someone to church?
  • Can you take a few moments to send a note of caring to someone in need?
  • Would you like to call Sunday visitors to First Church with words of welcome?
  • Are you able to take a few moments each week to pray in your home for parishioners in need?
  • Are you gifted at flower arranging?
  • Would you like to knit a prayer shawl?

PCM 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

The Visitors make personal calls on parishioners who are homebound or in nursing facilities.  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 ministers, retired minister members, and lay leaders to lead worship services for those who are unable to attend a church.  We currently coordinate monthly liturgies Delamere Woods, Kimberly Hall, and Windsor Rehabilitation.

Meals and Transportation

This committee provides meals to members who are sick, home from the hospital, or recently bereaved. It also furnishes rides to and from church and for 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 after a hospitalization.

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

This group gathers monthly to knit 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

This ministry arranges for Sunday flowers and their distribution to shut-ins. They also coordinate hospitalization deliveries and the Easter and Christmas displays
