CARE MINISTRIES

RUMC is committed to changing lives through caring acts within our congregation. 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.

This ministry gives the gift of a quilt to an individual going through 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)
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.

SERVICE OF PRAYER & HEALING

These services are not necessarily services of curing, but do provide an atmosphere in which healing may occur. Come gather with your brothers and sisters in Christ, voice your needs for spiritual, physical, or relational healing, and experience the power of community in action.
We are blessed to have a team of medical professionals within our congregation who are available to respond to medical emergencies in each of our contemporary and traditional worship services and our seasonal community concerts.

If you have a medical background and would be willing to use your gifts in this ministry, please contact Mary Stokes
