SHUT-IN ADOPTION PROGRAM: So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6: 10). Our pastors do an excellent job caring for the souls of our shut-in members by providing them with the Word and Sacrament. We can help by caring for their worldly needs. Consider signing up to “adopt a shut-in” by stopping by once or twice a month to chat, bring a treat, share stories, or let your children entertain and be entertained. There will even be an opportunity for an informal training session to give you ideas and help you prepare for conversations and situations that may arise. Whatever you are willing to give, we will find someone who needs it. If you would like to sign up for the program, or are interested in more information, sign up at the Information Center or contact Mark Kranz at email@example.com.
