The Reid Temple Touch of Faith Ministry provides comfort and a support system for sick and shut-in members of the church and their families. Through visitations by telephone or in person at a home or health care facility, ministry members touch the lives of those who cannot physically attend church services due to illness, injury, or care-giving responsibilities. They reach out to the sick and shut-in through prayer, the reading of scriptures, and the ministry of presence. They also arrange for absentee church members to receive communion by ordained clergy as well as CD’s of videotaped church services.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE/VOLUNTEER
Members interested in serving in this ministry must be comfortable being around sick persons and sensitive to a wide variety of health concerns.
Contact Rev. Odessa Simpson, Ministry Leader, 301-352-0320, ext. 469, for more information on this ministry and its upcoming meeting dates and times. This ministry meets on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.
