We are still looking for a handful of Commissioned Visitors to help chat with and support people in our congregation who are in need. Here’s a brief and helpful look at what Commissioned Visitors do.
Before we start, an item we forgot to mention in earlier advertisements. Until COVID-19 is no longer a threat, all visiting will be done by phone. We won’t risk exposing our members or Commissioned Visitors.
Commissioned Visitors are trained to visit people who have health concerns more significant than that of the average person, but not in a life-changing crisis. Such concerns could include aging, chronic illnesses, or short-term medical diagnoses that might require immediate treatment, but not long-term effects.
Commissioned Visitors learn about active, compassionate listening, how to walk with people without having to control the journey, and how to stand in the midst of things that won’t change but still be strong and compassionate. These skills don’t just help in visitation ministry, but daily life.
Commissioned Visitors bring rays of hope and faith through clouds of uncertainty.
Will you be part of our new Commissioned Visitor class? Training starts via Zoom at the end of the month. Talk to Pastor Dave if you have the heart to help with this important ministry!
