The last few articles from Pastoral Care Ministry have discussed, “What Can I Say?” and “Who Are You Going to Call?” Now we’re gonna talk about, “What Can I Give?”
RB Community Visitation Volunteers visit and share God’s love with church members who are limited in their activities. These special people give their time, their ears and their prayers.
Here is a recent report from a visitation volunteer who has been visiting a special woman in a facility every two weeks for over 3 years.
“I had my visit this afternoon and she is doing pretty well, although she was a bit down about her daughter asking her “what’s new?” She said that she has nothing new because she does not do anything. God once again provided a perfect reading for her from Jesus Calling about what we have to look forward to so that was very uplifting to her. He always knows what is needed, doesn’t He?”
What a blessing for both ladies to celebrate God’s goodness together.
If you would like to join the visitation team, we are always looking for more volunteers. You will receive orientation, training and on-going support from the parish nurses.

Also, if you know someone who would benefit from a visit, just let us know. Who knows the friendships that await? We can give because God first gave to us.
