When the church receives word of the death of one of our members, the volunteers on our Bereavement Committee take action. The volunteers on call pick up a small pre-selected, pre-paid meal from Strossner’s Bakery and take it to the family of the recently deceased church member. Each volunteer takes approximately two or three weeks on call each year. Returning members and members-to-be have an annual meeting—one and only meeting—which will last one hour at 1:00pm on October 10 in C403, the Apphia Classroom. Please register with Ryland Brown at 233-2527 ext. 137 if you can attend. If you would like to participate but are unable to attend the meeting and would like more information, be in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This caring ministry is meaningful to both the receiver and the giver. Let me know if you would like to be involved!
