CARE MINISTRIES

RUMC is committed to changing lives through caring acts and missions, both within our congregation and to the ends of the earth. It takes members of all ages working together to care for needs within our church family and in the places Christ calls us beyond our church.

For information regarding these ministries, contact Mary Stokes, Care Coordinator, mstokes@rumc.com or 770-261-1741.


Prayer Quilt Ministry

This ministry gives the gift of a machine-stitched quilt to an individual going through a serious illness or challenging circumstances. The quilt is placed on the altar during worship; those in worship are invited to offer a prayer while placing hands on the quilt or by tying a knot in the ribbon attached to the quilt. Prayer Quilt Ministry meeting information:

When – Third Tuesday of the month (Sept. – June)
Time – 7 – 9 p.m.
Where – The parlor, Chapel building (B)

Card Writing Ministry

Each week volunteers send handwritten notes of care and concern to members who are going through illness, loss of a loved one, or celebrating the birth of a child. RUMC provides all the necessary materials for this ministry.
