The Called to Care Team is an outreach mission from St. Paul to those of our congregation who are unable to join us on Sundays in the sanctuary. Team members visit folks in their homes and also in nursing homes. Over the past year many good friendships have developed as a result of the over 250 visits, cards, and small gifts given. Additionally, we now have six ladies who craft hand-made birthday and anniversary cards for our friends at home. A big thank-you to all who have helped make this a growing ministry of our church this past year. If you would like to join us next year, please call Kay Wellington, 419-738-8803.
John 13.34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you are to love one another.
