CONGREGATIONAL CARE

It’s our honor to care for the people of our church as they walk through life’s greatest struggles and deepest joys.

Our Deacons work with our congregation to ensure that each and every Northridge member is taken care of. From providing a helping hand for yard work to home visitations, congregational care ministry at Northridge is a key part of our community.

Contact our Deacons ([email protected]) or our church office to get involved.

Flower Ministry

There’s nothing quite like getting a fresh bunch of flowers when you need a pick-me-up or have something exciting going on, which is where the flower ministry comes in. When a bouquet is donated for Sunday service, volunteers are then recruited to deliver flowers to a lucky Northridge member later in the week.

Helping Hands

NPC Deacons and member volunteers are always willing to offer a helping hand, whether it’s with yard work or a simple home repair.

Medical Equipment

If you’re needing medical equipment such as a wheelchair, the NPC Deacons have a list of equipment available to church members.

Transportation

NPC Deacons have information available on free or low-cost transportation available. Deacons can also arrange for transportation for church members to church activities.

Visitation

An important piece of our congregational care ministry involves home visitation. Contact our Deacons ([email protected]) or church office to request a home visit.

Home Communion

Once a month, our Deacons travel to members’ homes to deliver the sacrament to those who are unable to worship with us in person.

Caring Notes

Our NPC Deacons know the meaningfulness of a handwritten note, which is why the practice of dropping notes in the mail to different members of our congregation is so special.

Grief Books

Our Deacons mail the series “Journeying Through Grief” to those who have recently lost a loved one.

Meal Ministry

Whether a congregation member is recovering from surgery or has just birthed a new baby, our Deacons coordinate a meal train for food to be delivered to the home.

Support Team Ministry

Our Deacons work to provide special support to congregation members when needed, whether on a short or long-term basis.

Purls of Wisdom Knitting Group

NPC Deacons collaborate with the Northridge Purls of Wisdom Knitting Group, a collection of members who regularly meet to make prayer shawls and baby blankets that are then delivered to congregants and refugee families. For more information, contact Teri Pearce Cantrell at (214) 803-7935.
