Serving One Another

DSCN1000“Just as you did unto the least of these… you did it unto me.” (Matthew 25:40)

One of the calls of the Church is to care for one another – and while this means those outside our walls, it also means we care for each other. Here are some ways we take care of each other at Christus Victor:

Meals of Mercy

Sometimes life circumstances such as a surgery, a death, or a birth make it difficult for people to get food on the table. This ministry delivers home-cooked meals to our members who find themselves in such a place.

Free Blood Pressure Screenings

Our Parish Nurse is often available on Sunday mornings to take people’s blood pressures.

Prayer Chain

Prayer is what ties us to God and to one another. Our Prayer Forum keeps abreast of the prayer needs of members of this community. Regular email blasts keep those on the Prayer Forum updated on the needs and progress of those on our prayer list.

Prayer Shawls are knitted or crocheted creations with prayers that the wearer will feel God’s presence woven into each stitch.  Completed shawls are available in our Outreach Center–pick one up to give to someone who needs to feel wrapped in God’s love!  Yarn and instructions for making prayer shawls yourself are also available in the Outreach Center.

Victorious Visitors

Christ calls us to visit and care for the sick (Matt. 25:36). As well as regular pastoral calls, our members who are shut ins or in the hospital receive visits from our lay members.
