Friends In Christ

"I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete." 2 John :1:12  
God calls us to touch the lives of the homebound with kindness and compassion. Our mission is to encourage one another as a family of faith and extend the gift of Christian friendship to every brother and sister in Christ.
You may be familiar with the phrase "friends in Christ" as we are all called to be friends in Christ, but this is also the name of our ministry to serve our homebound members. We have a large number of our members who are unable to join us for church services or any of the other activities that we enjoy as a community of believers. It is hard to imagine what it would be like to be unable to attend church, Bible studies, our wonderful fellowship gatherings, or any of the other engaging opportunities that make us a Christian community.

Like most ministries, Friends in Christ was born out of a need to reach out to our brothers and sisters in Christ who have become isolated from the church due to a variety of reasons. We are called to be vessels of God's love by spending time visiting on a regular basis to show the homebound how important they are to our Christian family. What a great opportunity to make new friends or rekindle lost friendships by visiting the homebound once a month.

Parish Nurse

"...for I was sick and you cared for me..."  Matthew 25:36
The mission of the Parish Nurse Ministry is to care for parishioners of Christ Church who have on-going medical needs or who have recently been in the hospital. We visit people in the hospital or at home, make follow-up visits or phone calls, take parishioners to doctors appointments, serves as a liaison with community resources and services, and other activities that may be helpful due to a personís medical situation.
Additionally, we have quarterly new baby and parent get-togethers to introduce moms with new babies to each other and our nursery personnel and facility. We sponsor health promotion events such as a yearly flu shot clinic, CPR/AED training, blood drives and blood pressure monitoring. There is no charge for our services.

Flower Delivery

Each Sunday, dedicated members of the Flower Delivery Ministry meet in the sacristy to re-arrange the flowers from the altar and prepare them for delivery to parishioners who are in the hospital, nursing homes or are homebound. Each arrangement includes a card stating that the flowers are from the altar of Christ Church along with Psalm 46:1, God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Community of Hope

The mission of the Community of Hope is to help Christians who are called to pastoral ministry develop their spiritual gifts, become grounded in the Benedictine tradition, and be supported in Community, in order to offer Christ's Ministry of Presence to those in need. The training program for the Community of Hope is offered through the School for Ministry, the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina.
