Helping Hands Ministry: Many Hands Make Light Work

Helping Hands provides members of East Shore a little extra help for whatever reason, especially when family member/friends unable to meet the needs. This can include cards, calls, and e-mails when recovering from an illness, hospital visits, home visits, preparing +/or delivering meals, food shopping, giving rides to appointments, help with light housework, light yard work, walking a pet, getting up on a ladder to change light bulb/smoke detector.

How Does it Work?
Request for help usually goes to Minister, Lay Pastoral Minister, or Helping Hands Coordinator, Carol Sinape. Once a need is noted, our Helping Hands Coordinator contacts the East Shore Member to determine what help they might need. Information is collected regarding Zip code (Connection Team), and other groups they might be involved in such as Covenant Circle, other Ministry groups, Other Groups (Book club, Men’s Breakfast Club, Coffee Klatch, etc).

Then, the Connection Team Helping Hands Liaison is contacted to become person to oversee members needs, including keeping the Helping Hands Coordinator, Lay Pastoral Minister, and Minister informed about needs being met or not.
