Since many people suffer from loneliness, our visitation ministries reach out to the rarely or infrequently visited folks in facilities — and there are many.  For New Covenant members and regular attendees in need of this service, please contact the Congregational Care Office at (352) 750-4529. 

Hospital Visits:  Pastoral and lay minister visits are made to hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and rehab centers.  If you know of anyone in one of our local area facilities, please call the Care office at (352) 750-4529 so we may arrange a visitation.  Please let us know when you are going to have surgery or are in the hospital.  We would like to have prayer with you (in person or over the phone). There are various ways for your church to provide care and connection, such as visits, cards, and flowers for you and your loved ones.

Helen’s Helpers provide respite care of one to three hours in their home for caregivers to receive a needed break.  The purpose is for the volunteer to be with the loved one so he or she will not be unsupervised.

Toby’s Encouragers are individuals who visit residents of assisted living facilities and rehab centers in our area as well, but visit the same person weekly or monthly. This facilitates the ability to establish an on-going relationship.

 Please consider being a volunteer for folks in need of this service.  To volunteer, please call the Care office at (352) 750-4529.
