Parish Caring Ministries offers unique opportunities to serve First Church. If you are interested in serving others, there is a special place for you.
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?
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.
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.
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.
The members of this ministry write notes of support and condolence to First Church members who are ill, bereaved or convalescing after a hospitalization.
Upon receiving a request for prayers, members of the prayer teams offer prayers in the privacy of their own homes.
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.
This ministry arranges for Sunday flowers and their distribution to shut-ins. They also coordinate hospitalization deliveries and the Easter and Christmas displays
