We are now in the process of making our Christmas visits. A number of local ladies have hand knitted over 60 lap blankets and prayer shawls which we are wrapping and delivering in our care bags to residents. Many thanks to Betty Rogers and all the local talent that have served so faithfully to bless the shut-ins in the area.
In our busy lives we must not forget the sick, the suffering, the widowed, and the less fortunate.
It’s hard to imagine how it feels to say good bye to family, friends, home, possessions and independence and then be sent to an unfamiliar home.
Nurses and care givers do so much to love and care for shut-ins but spread over so many patients and with constant emergencies there is only so much that they can do. Physical and medical needs are often so great that their spiritual and social needs are not always seen as a priority.
Shut-ins need friendship, worship, and encouragement. We meet the growing needs of many of these dear people during this critical time in their lives.
The mission of Not Forgotten Ministries will target these needs. They can’t attend church so we bring church to them. Many in their lifetime have never connected with a church yet faith in God is critical during these final chapters of life.
The mission of Not Forgotten Ministries is to recruit people to address the worship and friendship needs of those unable to connect with the outside world. We are a church to shut-ins, a collective arm of Christian believers reaching out to those who cannot go to church. Richard Daughtridge, Ministry Director
