Caring for One Another

http://66.132.247.165/uploads/caringhands250x175.jpgPart of the blessing of being church is the opportunity to give and receive care to sisters and brothers we know through Christ. In our giving care there is a sense that we act as Christ toward one another; in our receiving care there is a sense that we receive Christ's care. Consider these ministries where you might give or receive Christ's care.

New Baby Ministry
Each baby is welcomed to White Memorial by a home visit from the church. Then each month for the first year, we provide information which includes topics on nurturing your child in our faith tradition, developmental milestones, and various parenting tips that can assist families as they welcome their new bundle of joy. White Memorial always wants to welcome babies and their families to church for worship, study and fellowship.

Bereavement Care Team
The Bereavement Care Team provides services for grieving families, such as meals and hospitality needs, following a death. Team members reach out with Christian love and concern by providing food, greeting visitors or helping in the kitchen of the family home, providing transportation for family members, and in other ways. Team members serve for one month out of the year.
