The mission of the Sick and Shut In Ministry is to share the love of God and the hope of healing, based on the Christian faith. The vision of this ministry is to provide a personal touch and minister through calls, cards, prayer and offering communion to ensure that members continue to feel part of Bethesda - even during seasons of illness or life changes that prevent them from worshipping with their church family. The ministry checks on and communicates with the sick and shut in of the church through visitation, calls and cards.
