CARE MINISTRIES 

Upon entering Friends Church we hope that you sense the presence of God and meet people who are friendly, welcoming and caring.  It’s our prayer that you don’t just come for a visit but you find North Olmsted Friends as the place you want to call your church.

Our Care Ministry’s mission is to uphold the words found in Galatians 6:2- “Carry each other’s burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Through the Care Ministry at Friends we demonstrate our love for the Lord and ‘care’ for our people by our actions – prayer support, visitation, phone calls, cards, notes, meals, transportation assistance along with other needs that arise.

Since each of us has a need for care, either to give or receive it, we encourage you to join the Care Ministry Team.

Our purpose is to deliver care, concern and compassion through the simple act of providing a meal for our NOEFC families going through challenging times and times of transition. New baby, sickness, hospitalization, loss of a loved one…when many friends share a meal, it becomes a Meal Train. The volunteers are sent an email to express the need along with some simple, helpful instructions that are found on the meal train link. You then can choose to sign up for the date that best works for you. Check it out and when an email arrives, hope on the train. We need willing meal providers, as well as notification of NOEFC families in need.

We are a group of caring people who desire to extend God’s love to folks who are affected by an accident, serious illness, dementia or extended suffering. We make and distribute a variety of lovingly made “comfort” items. The Care Cabinet is located in the north hallway and is open Sundays making these “comfort” items available for YOU to share with those who are near and dear to your heart. Much of the “work” is done at home, but we gather monthly at 12:30-2:30 pm at the church in S-4/5 (last Wednesday of each month) to pray, share ideas and work on projects. New team members are always welcome.
