Care and Connection continues to focus on a coordinated program which is here to serve the First Congregational Church through in-reach as well as outreach.
If you would like to be a part of the Care & Connection Team or ANY of the groups below, please contact Laura Cole, Coordinator of Care & Connection.
Supported by Laura, this team reaches out to our church family through regular visits, phone calls, resources, listening, and offering prayers when needed, as well as helping to deliver poinsettia plants at Christmas and Easter lilies at Easter. This team provides an integral opportunity to support others as needs arise within our church community. They can be seen offering support to our members and friends at JML Care Center, Heritage at Falmouth, Atria Woodbriar Place, Atria Woodbriar Park, Royal Main, Royal Megansett, Cape Cod Apartments, Cape Regency, as well as other area care facilities and individual homes when members and friends can no longer attend church. The group meets quarterly.
This very important group meets regularly to discuss loss and to work to support one another in a non-clinical way. Loss comes in many forms and this group welcomes new members as we continue to walk in a journey of healing from loss.
The Good Shepherd Program continues in the memory of Bruce Haslun, a member of our church who encouraged us to care for one another through the cooking of meals. They continue to cook monthly to assist in preparing meals for caregivers, those who are homebound, and struggling community members who enter our church. Meals are prepared under Serve-safe supervision to ensure safe and healthful meals. This group is kept to about six people in order to work within the physical space in our kitchen.
This group continues to make a significant impact on others within our church and community with their visits to the homes of members & friends as well as rehabilitation and residential facilities. This group continues to be organized by Bobbie Miner and is supported by Care and Connection.
