"You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love.." Galatians 5: 13 (NIV)
Transitioning through life's challenging stages exposes our need for God's grace and for a connection with a faith community. During times of transition, we strive to be agile and focused in providing compassionate spiritual care, offering fellowship and entering relationships while mediating God's grace to one another. Transition moments include entering marriage, grieving a loss, becoming a parent, parenting adolescents, becoming empty-nesters, caring for aging parents, enduring chronic or terminal illness, going through divorce, losing a job, moving to a new community, changing careers and many more.
Volunteers make or pick-up and delivery meals to homebound members of our faith family or those in the midst of a challenging situation due to illness, injury or other life situation. To request meals or to join the Meal Ministry volunteer list, contact Donna Sims, UMCG Meal Ministry Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-230-773.
It's vital that we remember the members of our church who are not able to attend church activities, or worship with us on a regular basis. For more information, please contact Nancie Lillie at 630-232-6696 or email@example.com or Rod Yarger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (630) 584-2656.
