Other Caring Ministries

Care Cards

Team members take turns mailing cards to folks as they recover from a medical condition, mourn the loss of a loved one, or celebrate a special birthday.  People appreciate knowing the church is thinking of them!  If you would like to take a turn sending cards one month, please contact Eileen DuBell in the church office.

Christmas Giving!

Doylestown United Methodist in 2018 is again partnering with Lenape Valley Foundation and Methodist Services, to provide gifts for their clients, based on their knowledge of the presenting needs. Please prayerfully consider participating in this worthwhile ministry during this holiday season.

We will collect gift cards and money for distribution to folks in need, through the above organizations. Gift cards to grocery stores are welcome. Please drop by the office or clearly label envelope and place in offering.

Please contact Debbie Schultheiss, Director of Caring Ministries, with any question Dschultheiss@doylestownumc.com

Flower Ministry

Almost every week, there are fresh flowers placed on the altar for Sunday worship.  They are then distributed into smaller bouquets, and delivered to folks who would appreciate having their day brightened in this way.  People are needed to assemble the bouquets and deliver them in the Doylestown area.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Sherri Boccagno at boccagnoj@comcast.net

Meals

When people experience a death in the family, a hospital stay, the birth of a child, or some other event that disrupts the routine of everyday life, it is helpful to have the worry of meal-planning removed from their list of responsibilities.  Karyn Rowand organizes meal delivery for a few days’ time, and she would be happy to have your help.  Contact her at karynt77@msn.com if you would like to volunteer to provide a meal, or if you know someone who could use this type of assistance.

Pins and Needles

Every Friday morning at 9:30, a group of creative folks gathers to create beautiful hand-made prayer shawls, baby blankets, hats, scarves and gloves.  These items are distributed to church members, folks in the community, and beyond.  The makers knit love and prayers into every stitch, so that the items may be a comforting, tangible expression of God’s love.  Come join us any Friday!
