Creekwood UMC Congregational Care Emergency Fund
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way, you will fulfill the law of Christ. ~ Galatians 6:2
Brother's Keeper is a fund designated to assist those in our congregation with extraordinary financial needs and to offer emergency support. While Creekwood members are generous when giving to outreach and missions around the world, the Brother’s Keeper Fund is an opportunity for us to support those in our church family. In these tough economic times, our members can find themselves temporarily in need and through the Brother’s Keeper Fund, they can find timely support.
A group of individuals committed to caring for the people of our congregation as well as the community. If you are interested in serving on our Care Team making meals, gifts or keeping our congregation up to date on an individual receiving or in need of care, please contact Patti Festa. Included in this ministry is our Ride Share Program. If you or someone you know is in need of transportation--perhaps to a doctor's appointment, to the grocery or to a relative's home--please contact us. We have a team prepared to assist day or night.
We are constantly looking for ways to make sure people know they are not alone. In response to so many of our congregants walking through the recent death of a loved one, we are forming a Grief Group. This group will be a space to share whatever emotions or feelings might be hitting you that week — the good, the bad, and everything in between. The group will be led by others who have experienced loss.
