Lifting one another up to God is an important way we care for each other. Prayer cards are available in the pews. After they are dropped in the offering plate on Sundays, they are disseminated to FUMC clergy and to concerned prayer servants for prayerful intercession. You can also place your prayer requests here.
The prayer room, located in the south wing, is available as a quiet place for individuals to pray.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our Prayer Shawl Ministry is comprised of 15-20 active members who knit and crochet together as they pray over those who will receive the tangible warmth and comfort of their labor and prayers.
For those who are unable to drive, FUMC provides a transportation to church on Sundays. Buses are driven by volunteer drivers who spread out on routes throughout our city to bring people to the corner of Boulder and Nevada.
People who are hospitalized and have notified the church that they are in the hospital, are visited by a dedicated group of volunteers and by the ministerial staff. Our ministers, when asked, also make pre-surgery prayer visits. In addition, you may request post-hospitalization home visits during your recovery. If you would like a visit while in the hospital, please call the church or contact the minister of visitation, Laura Whitmore, 471-8522, ext. 213.
Stephen Ministers are lay people who receive Christian caregiving training and then provide one-on-one care to hurting people facing a variety of crises or life challenges such as grief, divorce, cancer, financial difficulties, chronic illness, job loss, disabilities, loneliness, a spiritual crisis, or other life struggles. A new class of Stephen Ministers is usually trained every other year at FUMC. Each Stephen Minister is prepared with 50 hours of training and participates in regular peer supervision. Applications for this process may be obtained through the Minister of Caring Ministries. If you would like a Stephen Minister to accompany you through a difficult time, please contact Rev. Ann McClellan.
Flowers of Love
Each Sunday after worship, the altar flowers are delivered by the Flowers of Love team to church members who are hospitalized, homebound, or going through a difficult time.
Home Communion Servers
Every month, homebound members are visited by communion servers who bring them communion in their own homes. This group of volunteers touches the lives of others by sharing one of our most sacred sacraments in a loving manner.
A variety of books on religious matters are available at the library to be checked out. The library is currently being reorganized. Books available for check out are located on the book shelves in the Friendship Lounge.
When a person has experienced the loss of a loved one we offer assistance and care through our lay Bereavement Ministers. A book series, Journeying Through Grief, is used during the first year to help guide and support folks through the initial year of transition following a death. Bereavement Ministers are available to meet one-on-one with anyone who is grieving. In addition, we offer an annual grief support group and a December ‘Service of Remembrance’ for those grieving during the Christmas season.
Caring for our Homebound
This team of dedicated volunteers visits homebound church members. Through these visits, we show them our love and concern. For those who are unable to attend services at the church each week, we also provide a live broadcast of our 11:00 a.m. Sunday Worship service on FOX, channel 21. Worship services are also live streamed through Facebook and on the website at www.fumc-cs.org/livestream.
Order of St. Luke Healing Service
All are welcome to join on the last Monday of every month for a healing prayer service in the chapel. We pray, sing, have communion, and study a Bible lesson related to healing. This service is offered by the Order of St. Luke, an ecumenical healing ministry. For more information, contact Judy Rogers at 719-216-8004.
