Helping Hands is a ministry of First Presbyterian Church to people of our congregation who have short-term and special needs. Our members volunteer to provide occasional meals for those ill or recovering, to provide transportation and companionship for medical appointments, to run brief errands to the grocery store or pharmacy, and more. Other Helping Hands volunteers who feel led to visit those in need of companionship will be paired in a relationship with an individual or couple for friendly visits about once a month. There is minimal training, and no meetings. Once a year, the Parish Nurse and Associate Pastor for Pastoral Care and Congregational Life provide resources to this group at a brunch celebrating this important ministry.
How Can I Volunteer?
