Congregational Care

Resurrection is blessed to be filled with people who love and care for one another. Our Caring Visits Ministers are trained members of our community who go out into the world to bring Holy Communion, prayer, and faithful companionship to in our community who cannot make it to worship in person either because they are bound to their home, or because they are in the hospital. Their ministry of presence bears witness to Christ's light outside the walls of the church, in the lives of God's people. If you would like to recieve vists from a Caring Visits Minister, or if you feel that God is calling you to become a Caring Visits Minister, please contact Pastor Wyatt below.

There is nothing quite like receiving a handwritten and handmade card from someone who cares about you. Resurrection Card Writing Ministers write and make cards for all manner of occasions, and send them to people in our community. It is our way of caring for our community and reminding them that God loves them. If you feel that God is calling you to become a Card Writing Minister, whether you have any experience with card writing and making, or not, please contact our church office 520-575-9901 or Judy McMullen below.
