The Visitation team ministers especially to those who are unable to attend worship services at Chilliwack Alliance. A visit may include most aspects of our worship services: songs or hymns, scripture reading, and prayer. A word of encouragement and prayer may be offered by a pastor.
In the Spring and Fall on a weekday afternoon our Ministry Team brings those we visit to the church for a time of fellowship, food, music and communion at our Annual Easter and Remembrance Day Teas.
We’ve begun a monthly soup & bun lunch in the coffee connection for those who might enjoy the opportunity to mix & mingle. This is also a place to invite a friend or neighbor for a time of games, socialization and a bowl of soup in Christ’s name.
There’s also a Care Chain where we regularly call those who are homebound or alone to keep them connected and feeling loved.
Many within the congregation attend the 55+ Ministry; keeping connected with this group is vital to Senior’s Care.
Losing a family member can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences a person will go through. It is important to have a solid support system of friends and other family members during such devastating times. Bereavement ministry performs a number of tasks and hold various responsibilities vital to helping bereaved church members deal with their loss while they pass through the stages of grief.
