Support for Seniors

Visitation Program

Our church’s Senior Visitation Team focuses on providing visits to church members who are unable to attend church for a variety of reasons. Members of this team are eager to spend time with folks who need company, friendship, and support. If you are interested in having a visitor or serving as one: Jonna Eichorn.


In an effort to preserve the story of our church, we have created the Legacy Project. Trained interviewers meet with church members to create a written document of their life story. One copy is given to the individual and one is kept in the church Library.  Contact Gail Spach for more information.
