In October of 1988 the Central Christian Church Caregivers ministry was formed to minister to the homebound members and friends of Central Christian Church. Members of this group visit those who are homebound or residing in nursing homes to let them know that they are not forgotten. Birthday, ‘thinking of you’, and ‘cheer & hello’ cards are sent. This group meets the first Tuesday of each month for a dinner meeting at 5:00pm at Western Sizzlin’. Worth and Dorothy Bracher provide leadership for the Christian Caregivers.
The caregivers ministry has grown to include a Hospital Care Group whose members visit Central members during hospital stays. This group meets the second Wednesday of the month. Joyce Greenhaw is the leader.
The Care Callers are a group of people under the direction of Mary Beach who make daily phone calls to our elderly members who live alone.
Central also has a Grief Care Ministry Group whose members pay special care and attention to those recently bereaved.
All of these groups welcome new members who are interested in participating in these specialized ministries.
